On Thursday 11th May 2017, Haydock High School hosted our first of a series of 'Teach Meet' events that will be taking place throughout the year. The event was available for all staff to attend, and members of each department shared a range of strategies and resources for engaging students in their learning at school.
Congratulations go to Mrs Vernon-Tinsley, Mrs Heaton and Mrs Singleton who all won prizes for the most inspiring and creative teaching resources. Special thanks also goes to Mrs Finnigan for organising and executing the event, as well as Miss Berry and Mrs G Williams for leading the event.
At Haydock High School we strive to constantly improve teaching practice and curriculum development in order to provide our students with the best teaching that we possibly can, by creating new, innovative and thought-provoking ways of delivering lessons to students.
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.
