History[edit] The school was produced in 1982 by the merger of Ormonde Drive High School and Old Hall High School on the Ormonde Drive site.[1] By 1988, the Old Hall site was empty. Old Hall High School, opened as Maghull Grammar School, in 1954 with new buildings opening in 1958, it was situated on Old Hall Road. The school was renamed Old Hall High School, in 1972 when it became a comprehensive. Ormonde Drive High School was opened by Lancashire County Council as Ormonde Drive County Secondary School in 1954, as a secondary modern school, it also became comprehensive in 1972. The school's sixth form academy was originally Woodend Primary School but was later changed to the sixth form after the merger of the two old schools. As of 2011[update] the school converted to an academy status. The Old Hall site is now a housing estate on the opposite side of the A59, covered by the roads Broxholme Way, Aisthorpe Grove, Glentworth Close and Hornby Chase. Sixth Form[edit] According to the 2014 OFSTED report "Achievement in the sixth form is good and shows an improving trend in both academic and vocational courses. Students achieve particularly well in drama, travel and tourism and media studies." The Sixth Form centre is also part of the collaboration project between three of the schools in Sefton along with Deyes High School and Maricourt Catholic High School Academic Performance[edit] In 2014 a visit from OFSTED reported that at the school "students are supported, encouraged and cared for very well."

Working with students on a one-to-one basis and in groups they help to overcome many barriers which include attendance, behaviour, communication, friendships, self-esteem, organisation, confidence, bullying, bereavement, family issues, medical/physical, emotional and many more.
