Haydock High School staff and students met throughout the morning of GCSE results day to celebrate the achievements of their Year 11 students with friends and family. Year 11 students across the country have faced unprecedented and challenging circumstances throughout their Key Stage 4 journeys and it was wonderful to see the delight on students’ faces as they collected their results. The commitment and dedication of Haydock High’s Year 11 students was celebrated as staff and students shared results. Students were grateful for the work of the staff and very excited for their next steps. Staff are incredibly proud of the students and their outcomes and wish them every success for the future!
Mr Abram, Headteacher, said: “On behalf of the staff, parents and local community of Haydock High School, I’d like to share my pride in the achievements and accomplishments of our departing Year 11 students and wish them all the very best for the future. They are a fantastic group of people.
“Students overcame very challenging circumstances and worked very hard, both in and out of school, to continue with their education. The dialogue that our staff and students share continued throughout the lockdowns and, as a group of colleagues, we are so proud of the students’ efforts to commit to their education throughout the pandemic.
“It has been wonderful to see students celebrate with friends and family as they received their GCSE results. As a year group, they overcame a number of challenging circumstances and showed grit and determination to continue with their studies and the assessment gathering process.
“They have worked tirelessly during their courses to make progress and have been supported by the staff and local community of Haydock with their studies. We are incredibly proud of their efforts. Their resilience and perseverance has really shone out over the last few years.
“We would also like to thank parents and carers for their much valued support of Haydock High School throughout their child’s education with us. Special thanks must go to Cowley International College for their support through the soft federation and in particular the fantastic guidance and leadership of Cameron Sheeran.
“We look forward to the next year and hope that this success will inspire the class of 2022 and beyond. This is a very exciting time for Haydock as we transition to the Outwood family of schools and we look forward to the fantastic opportunities that this presents for our students and our school community. We will continue to care, support and achieve to ensure that all students transition successfully to their post 16 journey.”
The Local Authority, Governors at Haydock and Cowley have agreed to a formal partnership called a ‘Soft Federation’.
A Soft Federation is when two or more schools agree to work together and are:
Keep our school community a safe, friendly and fun place to be. Get in touch via the SHARP system.
At Haydock High School our mission is to care for and support
each student so that they fulfil their potential, make outstanding progress and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We will be relentless in developing our skills, and work with our parents, Governors and wider partners to ensure that every student is known, contributes to our community and is
fulfilled in achieving their ambitions.
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.
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 ethos, behaviour, happiness, fulfilment and academic progress.
