History of Maidenhill

Maidenhill School opened in 1957 and was described as a ‘Palace of Education’. Previously students in Stonehouse had attended Stonehouse County Secondary School near Quietways.

By 2012, it was decided that a refurbishment of the main building should be completed. In February 2014, after 18 months of building work, Maidenhill School's £3.8 million refurbishment was complete.
There has been a massive transformation both inside and out. The old 1950s classrooms have been revamped and the impressive new Learning Resource Centre is situated at the heart of the school. There are attractive spaces for students to socialise both inside and out as well as new conference and meeting rooms. Maidenhill had already benefited from a modern sports hall, fitness and dance suites and a performing arts studio. Now, this has been joined by the new ultra-smart main school building.


In March, 500 students had a chance to show their parents and carers around, local businesses were invited for tours and a very successful open evening was held for the wider community, including former pupils.
