St. Julie's Catholic High School is a Roman Catholic secondary school for girls located in Woolton, Liverpool.

History[edit]

The school is the amalgamation of several different institutions, most established by the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, founded by Saint Julie Billiart. The sisters were called to Liverpool in 1851 at the behest of Fr. James Nugent to help educate the poor families in the area.

The sisters opened a fee paying school at Woolton Hall in 1950. This school later became a voluntary aided Grammar School and then merged with Notre Dame Mount Pleasant High School in 1970 to form Notre Dame Woolton. In 1983, Notre Dame Woolton merged with La Sagesse, a school of the Daughters of Wisdom on Aigburth Road in Aigburth, and adopted its current name.[1]

As of 2014, there are plans to move the school to a site on Beaconsfield Road adjacent to St. Francis Xavier's College.[2]
