2014 New School Year arrangements

  • All pupils return on 2/9/14

  • All other pupils arrive at 10.30 and go straight to Tutor. (please see below for the temporary access arrangements)
  • Any pupils who attend ProCo on Tuesday must come to school first at 8.30, collect a timetable and logbook and then go straight to ProCo.  

Building Works

The building works to widen the glass corridor and improve access to classrooms will continue until October. This will ultimately give us far better movement around the school and provide a new student entrance. For this reason students will need to come into school via Waterworks Lane or through the far gate at the front of school. Please be careful using Waterworks Lane as there can be traffic on it infrequently. We have arranged with the Highways Department to erect a warning sign to be placed at the end of the road.

Apologies for the inconvenience but hopefully the end product will justify the disruption.

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.
