On Friday 25th September 2015, the Modern Foreign Language department transformed Room 7 into a continental cafe in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. Students and staff had worked hard to lay tables adorned with tablecloths and flags and the room was filled with cakes and biscuits which had been donated by staff members. As staff relaxed, students took their orders for tea or coffee and they could then help themselves to the wonderful selection of refreshments during an extended break time. Head of Department, Mrs Giles did the draw for the raffle and many wonderful prizes were won by staff who had winning tickets.
Many thanks to staff who donated items for the raffle and baked or bought cakes to donate and to all of those who supported the morning by purchasing items and joining in the fun.
Well done to Mrs Giles and her team of willing volunteers who created a wonderful event and once again excelled in their annual support of this charity.
Over £180 was raised - thank you to everyone!
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.
