Best Merseyside schools: Knowsley and St Helens secondary schools with a ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating

These local schools have impressed Ofsted and been ranked as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’.

March 1 marks National Offer Day, when parents and children across the region find out where they will begin their secondary school journey.

A joyus day for many, it can also be a stressful day for some parents or carers, with their children not being accepted into their first choice school.

However, if your child is not offered a place at any of the preferred schools listed on your application, the council will offer places at alernative schools.

So to help with deciding on an alternative school, or to see how your child’s soon-to-be institution ranks against others, we’ve complied a list of all the highest rated secondary schools in Knowsley and St Helens - ranked ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, up to March 2023.

Grades are based on overall effectiveness, quality of education, behaviours and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.

We have compiled a list of secondary schools to receive the highest rankings*, up to March 2023. Did your child’s school make the list?
