19th December Final Day Arrangements

On Friday 19th December 2014 school will finish for the Christmas holidays after the whole school assembly at approximately 1.00pm. Any pupil requiring a free school meal will be catered for on request. Unfortunately the school bus will not be operating on this day.

May I take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy and restful Christmas and a peaceful new year.

We look forward to seeing you all again, refreshed and ready for another successful year on Tuesday 6th January 2015 at 8.30am.

Headteacher’s Introduction. 

Golborne High is a school I am proud to lead. It is a school with a strong sense of community involvement, where your child will be happy and safe. Staff have high expectations and your child will be supported, challenged and nurtured to meet those expectations. We will endeavour to develop all their talents and perhaps help them discover new qualities of which they were unaware.

We have a tradition of strong pupil voice. We encourage all pupils to make a contribution and participate in whole school and House activities. I believe this encourages enterprise and leadership, which in turn produces rounded citizens capable of making a contribution to society. I would like to think that, when they leave us, our young people have the capacity to take control of and direct their own learning; a pre-cursor to success in their future careers and achieving their ambitions.

Leadership at all levels within school supports the pupils’ learning. Teaching is engaging, well planned and demanding. Our House system underpins the academic structure, providing personalised support and guidance. In short we try to provide a structured learning environment in which all can be happy and reach their potential.
