Haydock High School sisters Ellie Rooney and Leah Telford are another great success story for their achievements in sport.
Both girls have had some wonderful successes in women’s boxing and are a great example of commitment and passion for their sport and the rewards it can bring! Training 4 times a week, they are a part of the ‘Wildcard’ club in Parr; Ellie has been boxing for 6 years and Leah for 3 years.
Most recently Ellie and Leah have travelled over to Ireland for a major boxing competition and have both come home with medals and certificates.
Both competed in the All Female Boxing Competition, with over 100 competitors. Ellie was the overall winner in her weight group and Leah picked up a medal for the runner up position in her weight.
Ellie has also won a further competition in the England Boxing – Women’s Winter Box Club.
A huge well done to both students and we wait for the next instalment!
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.
