It is located in the district of Leftwich, Northwich in Cheshire, England. Children come here from neighbouring areas such as Moulton, Davenham, Leftwich, Kingsmead, Winsford, and Middlewich which form the schools local catchment area.

History

The school used to be known as the Northwich County Grammar School for Girls from 1957, a selective single sex school with provisions for boarding pupils, which had a sixth form.

Comprehensive

The school was changed to a comprehensive in September 1978, with sixth form pupils from the school and the former Sir John Deane's Grammar School going to the new Sir John Deane's College. Essentially the two grammar schools were split into two comprehensives - one for ages 11-16 and the other for 16-18.

Academic performance

The school gets good GCSE results, well above the England average, and slightly above the Cheshire average. Results have steadily improved over the last 5 years. The 2011 Ofsted inspection reported the school as being good.
