Haydock High School will be hosting our annual Open Evening on Thursday 21st September for prospective students and parents alike to sample the different departments that make up our school.
A variety of fun and informative activities will be taking place across all of our curriculum areas, including, but not limited to,:a ‘Food Quiz’ and ‘RE Scrabble’ in our Ethics and Philosophy department; a taste of life in the 'Roaring Twenties' in our History department; a spooky performance of 'Macbeth' in our school garden with the English department; as well as programming on our Raspberry Pi's and making computer games with our Computer Science department.
Throughout the evening there will be talks from our Headteacher, Mr Murphy, as well as staff on hand in all of our departments in case you have any questions you need to ask us.
The evening will begin at 17:30 and will end at 20:00 and is mainly aimed at parents of Years 5 and 6 students from across the St. Helens area. We hope to see you there!
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.
