Liverpool school applications: All the Liverpool secondary schools rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted in 2024

Secondary school places offers will be sent to parents across Merseyside from March 1.

This Friday, Year Six pupils across England and Wales will find out whether they will be attending their first choice secondary schools, in September.

Councils across Liverpool and Merseyside will send offers of secondary school places from Friday, March 1, after applications closed on in October. Places will be sent to parents via email, in the majority of cases.

As parents prepare to see whether their children have been accepted to start their dream schools, we have created a list of all of the 'top' secondary schools in Liverpool, which currently hold Ofsted's highest 'outstanding' mark.

While concerns have been shared regarding Ofsted's single-word judgements, alongside calls for reform, they are currently one way by which parents decide which schools to send their children to. As of February 29, 2024, 11 secondary schools* in Liverpool are rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, the top ranking out of four possible outcomes, with 'inadequate' being the lowest mark. See if your child's preferred secondary school is featured below.

Please note, some schools featured in this list have not been inspected for a number of years.
