Thank you for visiting Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Primary School’s website. I am extremely proud to be the Head Teacher of our school: a small, friendly, inclusive and vibrant one-form entry Catholic primary school situated in the heart of Wavertree suburb. We can track our heritage back over 150 years. Our mission statement, based on the words of Pope Francis, ‘Like Our Lady, we live wisely, think deeply and love generously, in Christ,’ perfectly embodies the Catholic ethos of our school.
We are so proud of our children: they are enthusiastic, enquiring and have a real love of learning. Our staff work tirelessly, putting care and thought into everything they do to help our children be the best they can be and to ensure that all children receive an education that meets their individual strengths and needs. At OLGH, we are devoted to creating the best learning environment, where each and every child can thrive and develop into well-rounded, independent, upstanding members of our community.
We have excellent links with our parish, Christ the King and Our Lady, and in the local community too. We are a very warm and friendly school and, because of this, we always find that children settle in quickly and are very soon part of the Our Lady of Good Help family. By developing strong relationships, we are able to teach the children to be compassionate, kind and respectful; to take pride in themselves, each other and our school; and we are able to keep our children safe and happy. On top of this, we value the relationships we have with our parents, our parish and our local community. We truly believe that, by working in partnership, each child will receive all the love, care and support needed to flourish. Children join our school from Reception, enter our superbly-resourced classroom which has a fantastic outdoor area. Our children enjoy a rich and engaging, broad and balanced curriculum that provides every child with a real love of learning and helps them to progressively build their knowledge.
Our children also have the chance to enjoy a wide range of educational visits too such as Acorn Farm, Roman Chester or the Liverpool’s museums as well as residential trips. We run lots of after-school enrichment clubs, including: art, board games, choir, a variety of sports and STEM club amongst many others so that children are able to develop other passions and learn life-skills. We have excellent links with our parish, Christ the King and Our Lady, and in the local community too. We are a very warm, inclusive and friendly school and, because of this, we always find that children settle in quickly and are very soon part of the Our Lady of Good Help family.
We may be a small school but we have the BIGGEST heart!
Please give us a call as we would love to show you around our wonderful school.
Mr. M. McQuiston
