History of All Hallows
All Hallows Catholic High School opened its doors in 1975 and has since provided an excellent Catholic education for thousands of young people. The school was set up by the Archdiocese of Liverpool in conjunction with Lancashire County Council to serve the needs of a wide Catholic Community.
We have several partner parishes which form the basis of our intake and these parishes are:
St Teresa’s, Penwortham, St Mary Magdalen’s, Penwortham, St Oswald’s, Longton, Our Lady’s, Tarleton and Our Lady & St Gerard’s, Lostock Hall.
Baptised Catholic children who live in these parishes are at the top of our admissions criteria (please see Admissions Policy for details).
The school site has been enhanced over the years and we are regularly supported by the Archdiocese of Liverpool in providing us with finance to improve the quality of the buildings we live in.
In 2007 we had a huge building programme that enabled all departments to be located in specific areas of the school and also provided an additional Science Laboratory. Over the last six years we have undergone a repainting and refurbishing programme throughout the entire school. All areas of the school have been analysed, repainted, re-carpeted and in some cases new lighting systems have been put into place. ICT facilities have come to the fore in recent years and we have designed our school around the central ICT area in most subject areas. This refurbishment programme is set to continue as the Governors are fully committed to providing our pupils with the best possible facilities.
The school continues to be oversubscribed and to serve the needs of the same parishes for which it was initially set up. The support of the Archdiocese of Liverpool has been instrumental in ensuring the development of All Hallows Catholic High School over the years.
