Haydock High School's Science department hosted the school’s first ever Science Fair on Friday 14th July. All Year 8 students were given the opportunity to produce a project and have worked tirelessly on them for the last 3 weeks.
The judging was conducted by Councillor Jeanette Banks, School Governor Nigel Rouch, and Deputy Headteacher Miss Lane. The local MP, Conor McGinn, also attended the event in support of the students.
The judges were extremely complimentary about the quality of the projects they saw and it was clear how much enthusiasm and time went into each of the projects.
The prizes awarded were as follows:
1st - Rosie Bell - Emulsions
2nd - Dylan Foulds, Ellis Davies and Ben Keating - DNA
3rd - Georgia Shiels - Global Warming
3rd - Lucy Killilea and Megan Smith - Bacteria
Everyone at Haydock High and, specifically the Science department, would like to congratulate all of the Year 8 students for their hard work. Well done!
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.
