Broughton Hall provides the very best in modern education for your child. Our school motto, ‘Cor Unum et Anima Una’ – ‘One Heart and One Mind’ – reflects the strong sense of community amongst staff, pupils, parents and governors. The central aim of our school is to provide the very best educational opportunities enabling each girl to develop her God-given talents, to grow in confidence and self esteem and fulfil her potential up to and including Oxbridge entrance.

The Catholic ethos of the school strives to demonstrate that we respect and value every member of the school community and is supported by the work of our School Chaplain. We have high expectations of all the children in terms of quality and presentation of their work and of their general conduct.

Our community education programme reflects the belief that education is a lifelong process and we strive to instil the necessary values and attitudes to work to enable all pupils to find fulfilment in a rapidly changing world.

We believe that, by fostering self reliance, self control, initiative and the ability to make reasoned judgements, our pupils, with God’s help, will develop into caring adults, showing concern for others and contribute much to the development of society in the 21st Century.

Our facilities include a newly opened £1.5m Technology/Arts block, state of the art Science laboratories, a well equipped Gym and a modern Dance Studio. Why not view the facilities on our Virtual School Tour.

In 2002, Broughton Hall was invited to become one of the first 101 Leading Edge Schools nationwide. The programme was established to identify, extend and spread excellence in the secondary sector, in order to support the continued improvement of teaching and learning in schools. As a Leading Edge school, Broughton Hall works in close collaboration with 12 Liverpool secondary schools.

Between 2009 to 2011 Broughton Hall was revamped under the Building Schools for the Future programme.We now use the latest technologies to provide challenge, pace and rigour for pupils and staff whilst continuing to build on the values of the Sisters of Mercy reflecting fairness, respect and care. Our building is innovative and challenges conventions but is designed to be flexible to meet the likely demands of the Future.

Our lead architect Scott Prisco is the award winning designer of the Microsoft High School of the Future in Philadelphia, which staff and students have visited. We have designed our curriculum to provide connected learning for our young people developing the skills required for the demands of our rapidly changing world.
