About Pensby High School

Pensby High School is a mixed, non-selective, non-denominational secondary school with sixth form situated in the village of Pensby on the Wirral Peninsula, Merseyside. It is a community state school and does not make use of any off-site provision. A smaller than average-sized school for a secondary school, it will provide 890 places for secondary and sixth form students between the ages of 11-18, when fully subscribed.

Pensby has its roots in the 1950s, following a greater need for school provision in the area at the end of World War II. The first school built was Pensby High School for Girls, with a Boys’ school counterpart built shortly after. While there was joint co-educational sixth form, it was not until September 2015 that the two schools amalgamated to become the Pensby High School it is today.

Values and Vision

With its motto “care respect imagine”, Pensby is a place with high aspirations and a culture of success. It strives to provide the students with the best teaching possible. It also gives students a good personal education, teaching them British values to help them develop into responsible citizens of the outside world.


“A wide variety of subjects and courses enrich students’ learning. Courses are well matched to students’ interests and abilities. The excellent care that students receive helps them to feel safe in school. Governors provide a good overview of the school’s work. They have clear plans for how the school should develop, and a good understanding of what the school needs to do further.”
