About Us

Formby High School prides itself on the provision of a caring and friendly learning environment.

Our school motto is ‘determined to achieve’ and, through hard work and encouragement, our students do just that.

We are recognised by Ofsted as an outstanding school and we have an impressive record of success at GCSE and A Level.  In 2016 three quarters of our GCSE students achieved five A* – C grades (including English and Mathematics), this significantly exceeds national expectations.  At the same time over half of our A Level students received grades A* to B which places Formby High School amongst the highest performing secondary schools in the region.

Outside the classroom our students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of community projects, extra-curricular activities, class trips and fundraising initiatives to build their confidence.  In doing this they begin to take responsibility for shaping a better future for themselves, their peers and the community beyond the school walls.

The ambitions and aspirations of our students are nurtured by teaching and pastoral staff and their personal development is at the core of all that we do here.

All students and staff at Formby High School strive to reach to the highest standards and that is reflected in the positive actions and behaviours that drive them to succeed.
