Community

Golborne High is a school at the heart of the local community. 

Links with primary schools and colleges

We have excellent working relationships with our local primary schools who we work with on a regular basis to provide high quality support. Our links with the local colleges are strong and we regularly organise visits for taster days, competitions, subject sampling and sporting activities.

The Wetlands and Local Community Groups

We are very proud that our school is used by local community groups, sports groups and local schools. Our recently built Wetlands provides unique opportunities for members of the public to look at the plants, waterways and pond life areas which are set to thrive over the coming years. It is a fabulous resource which enables the pupils and wider community to benefit from this natural world built within our school grounds.

Local Businesses and Organisations

Golborne High school also has strong links with local businesses and organisations and our pupils are actively involved and encouraged to take part in initiatives that contribute to these close working relationships. 

Our ongoing work with the engineering company Murphy’s has enabled our pupils to see how the team have constructed and built our Wetlands area. 

We recently organised our first Family Fun Day which was very well attended by members of the local community as well as local companies who provided many of the prizes and donations on the day. We also have close links with the Newton Le Willows Rotary club and have had success with them in a recent photography competition. 

Charity Work

We are passionate about supporting a range of charities each year. Recent fundraising events include bake sales, non-uniform days and raffles to raise funds and awareness for a range of different charities such as Age concern, McMillan cancer, Muscular dystrophy and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
