On Sunday 8th January 2017, a Haydock High student volunteered to venture out into the cold winter weather in order to clean up litter and maintain the environment in her local community.
As part of SCARS, the Sankey Canal Restoration Society, Year 8 student Rosie Bell ventured down the Sankey Canal in her local neighbourhood to pick litter and tidy up the communal paths so as to improve the environment for fellow residents. Overall she spent 3 hours of her Sunday being a conscientious and responsible member of society.
Mrs Heaton, Rosie's teacher and Head of Geography at Haydock High, said: “I was so impressed when Rosie explained to me how she had spent her weekend clearing the litter along the Sankey Valley canal. She had spent three hours on the Sunday voluntarily helping others in the community to support the conservation of the local environment. This kindness and respect for others and the surrounding area reflects Rosie’s positive attitude and caring nature towards everything that she does.”
Everyone at Haydock High would like to congratulate and thank Rosie for her hard work and consideration towards her local community and her local environment.

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.
