On Wednesday 3rd February a small group of students supported a number of Grange Valley pupils on a visit to Lyme & Wood Pits Country Park at Vista Road. The afternoon project was all about making improvements to the environment in the local community. Following a planning meeting the Grange Valley pupils decided they would like to go litter picking in a local park and meet a ranger to ask questions about the work he does to improve the environment. Scott Lancaster, the ranger, worked with the children and showed them how to build hedgehog habitats and talked about other topics which the children wanted to discuss. The students also worked in the nature walk and picked up litter. The experience developed the social skills and confidence of all the children involved and gave them an awareness of respecting the environment together with a sense of achievement.

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.
