Higher Achieving Pupils

At Golborne High School we are dedicated to ensuring that all students achieve their challenging targets. However, we recognise that some students have exceptional potential and benefit from additional input to ensure they aware of their potential and the opportunities that potential offers.  At Golborne High School HPA students are offered a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities. Students are surveyed to find their needs and interests and in recent years this has resulted in visits to The Universities of Oxford and Cambridge; debates run by sixth form students; specialist sessions delivered by college lecturers on “How to get into Medical School”; “Forensic Psychology” and “Medical Mavericks”. Additionally, HPA students have the opportunity to be  registered as associate members of a local sixth form colleges allowing them access to the colleges online material for independent study.
