St Julie’s Catholic High School in Woolton is the latest to be opened as part of a multi-million pound investment by Liverpool City Council.
The flagship £20m development has created a state-of-the-art new learning environment fit for the 21st century. The three and four storey building replaced a worn out and tired 1960s design which needed significant repairs and maintenance.
The complex can accommodate up to 1,100 student and includes a multi-use games area and sports hall which are available for use by the local community.
The development has also opened up woodland behind the school to make up for the loss of a small section of a neighbouring field.
Scenes from the opening of St Julie’s Catholic High School:
St Julie’s is the 16th new school to be built as part of the Liverpool Schools Investment Programme (LSIP). The £180m project was created in the wake of the government’s announcement that it was scrapping the national Building Schools for the Future initiative in 2010.
Spearheaded by Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, LSIP pledged to give young people in the city the modern learning environments they deserved.
So far more than 14,000 students and pupils in Liverpool have directly benefited from the scheme.
