Headteacher's Message

Hello and welcome to Haydock High School where I am honoured and privileged to be the Headteacher. I would like to thank you for taking the time to view our website which I hope gives you an insight into our school, and promotes our Charter which articulates our mission and core values.

These improvements have only given us greater motivation to enhance achievement even more in the future as part of our determined drive to become an outstanding school.

We care. We support. We achieve.

We take great pride in serving the needs of our students and are dedicated to each and every one of them making outstanding progress in their time at our school. To this end, we undertake a significant commitment and interest in them as individuals so that we can most effectively meet their specific needs. This care for their achievement means we have the very highest expectations of their attendance, respect for the school and our Charter, behaviour, happiness, fulfilment and academic progress. We are very proud of the ‘wrap-around’ care that we provide for our students and have been delighted by our students’ improved results in recent years. These improvements have only given us greater motivation to enhance their results even more in the future as part of our determined drive to become an outstanding school.

We cannot provide for our students in isolation, and work hard with our primary partners, parents, Governors and the wider school community to ensure that no student is ‘left behind’. To this end, our pastoral and academic teams work collaboratively to provide the strongest platform for success, and life beyond school, and our students are used to the expectations of them achieving their own personal best. Every student is clear about their own contribution to the overall achievement of the school. While we celebrate individual successes, our collective accomplishments give us great reward as they reflect what can be achieved by working together with a common goal.

Student admissions are controlled by the local authority, and we are always delighted to accommodate personal tours of the school where you can see us at our best. Should you require any individual care and attention, or if you feel there are ways in which we can improve as a school, please contact us to discuss these issues. We are here to listen, and to serve the students and our community.

Best wishes

Haydock Curriculum

The pace of curriculum change continues to accelerate, for example introducing a more flexible Key Stage 3. Our constant planning offers confidence for successful delivery and assessment of these areas.

Over the last few years we have been successful in achieving Sportsmark, Investors in People, Artsmark, Careers and Guidance and Healthy Schools accreditation. We were also awarded the accolade of a ‘Get Set’ school in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.
