Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Engineering College is an oversubscribed secondary school on the outskirts of Skelmersdale. We benefit from a continuous buildings and property improvement programme and our facilities are well resourced with ICT equipment and materials.

The school’s Catholic ethos and Engineering specialism underpin all aspects of the well-resourced and valued learning community.
(IQM Report)

We are delighted with our reputation for high standards and academic achievement but what really sets us apart is our Catholic Ethos. Our mission is to make Christ known to every child and we embrace the core values of love, justice and hope. Our Lady's is committed to respond to Pope Francis' call to be a Church for the Poor and we strive to help our students understand their place and role in our global society. Our school is a place where students come first and we provide opportunities that nurture each person's strengths, gifts and talents, allowing them to grow into mature members of a global community in a safe, welcoming and caring environment.
