On September 14th the Local Authority conducted a review of Haydock in line with their ongoing support for all schools across the Borough. 4 Reviewers, including a former Senior HMI, HMI, former Secondary Headteacher and Primary Headteacher, worked with the school to evaluate the different aspects of school life, including Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare, Teaching and Learning and Leadership and Management. A summary copy of the Review's positive findings is available here and school are pleased that the LA Review recognises the strong progress being made at Haydock High.
Headteacher Ian Murphy said, ‘While it is always pleasing to have the school’s positive work validated and confirmed, it only ever makes it more determined to improve even further. I must thank and praise the staff and students for their great start to this year and for their ongoing desire to move forward together. It’s what makes Haydock such a special place to teach and learn. We should all feel very proud.'
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.
