Year 9 student Ellie Rooney has been successful at a boxing competition in Harrogate over the half term break. Ellie, who has been boxing outside of school competitively for 5 years, was victorious in both fights she took part in, eventually taking home a trophy and a shield from the competition.
Ellie hopes to continue her boxing through her time at school, doing the sport as one of her GCSE speciality sports, as well as continuing to pursue the sport after she eventually leaves high school in Year 11. Ellie was nominated for the 'Student of the Week' award in school by the PE department to recognise the brilliant success she has achieved over the half term break. Her success in boxing marks a significant year for students of Haydock High, where a number of year groups have excelled at a variety of sports.
Everyone at Haydock High School would like to congratulate Ellie on her success and we wish her the best of luck in her future fights as she progresses with the sport.
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.
