At the end of the summer term we said goodbye to a few members of staff, some of whom have been at Haydock for a long time.
After teaching for a combined sum of 172 years Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Valentine, Mrs Mallison, Mrs Curran and Mrs Smaje will retire this summer. We will be indebted forever to these remarkable teachers and leaders for their enthusiasm, wisdom, patience and endeavour, and they have shaped the experiences and talents of thousands of students at Haydock during their time with us. Our best wishes and thanks go with them, and we offer them our sincere gratitude for the chance to have worked with them during their careers. They have each set a tremendous example to us all, and we will strive to ensure that we live up to their legacy in the future.
In addition, Mrs Reilly, Mr Alexander and Miss Williams will be leaving us this summer as they pursue the next phase in their professional lives, while Miss Lunt, Mrs O’Neill, Mrs Barton, Miss Collier and Mrs Hamilton will also enjoy new challenges in September away from Haydock High School. Again, our thanks and best wishes go to all.
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.
