Haydock High students have created fitting tributes to the victims and the casualties of the recent Manchester attacks on May 22nd 2017. The students used their Personal Development sessions to reflect, think about and discuss the events that took place.
The theme of the lessons was: "'Bee' the change you wish to see in the world." Students colour-shaded images of bees, the symbol of Manchester, in solidarity and support of the victims of the attack. The students also talked about how many people in Manchester came together to help, care and support one another.
Students took their time to collect their thoughts and feelings, eventually writing messages of hope on the back of the bees they had shaded. Their work will be displayed around school to remind students of the respect, tolerance and love that they should show to each other in the school as well as in the wider community.

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.
