Haydock High School student Mark Worthington has struck gold at the Dwarf Sports Association National Games, held on the weekend of the 28th April to the 1st May, winning gold medals in the discus, javelin and shot-put competitions, as well as a silver team medal in Basketball.
Mark managed to have the winning throw in all the field events, as well as scoring 6 out of the 8 points his team managed to accrue during the Basketball competition. It is now the second year in a row that Mark has seen success at these games, after winning six gold medals and one bronze in the games in April 2016.
Mark has been preparing over the past year to compete in the World Dwarf Games that are held in Canada during August 2017 and these wins will certainly boost his confidence of success at the upcoming competition.
Everyone at Haydock High School would like to congratulate Mark on his brilliant performance at the National Games, as well as wishing him the best of luck for the upcoming World Dwarf Games held in August.
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.
