Students and staff were involved in a series of inspirational workshops on Thursday 22nd September.
Jay and Michael from the Fix-Up crew ran a series of motivation sessions to prepare Key Stage 4 students for the important year ahead. The focus for the day was study skills and motivation. Good learning habits were explained and demonstrated in the workshops. In addition, students set their own personal goals. The need to be a resilient learner was highlighted as a key factor for success. Students were shown how to improve revision techniques and time management.
The evening session for parents was very well attended and we value the home school partnership that enables students to reach their potential.
The student booklets used throughout the day are available for parents to revisit with their child in order to continue with the strategies at home. We wish all our GCSE students good luck in achieving their OPTs throughout the year.
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.
