From the CEO, Jon Wright NLE.
Welcome to the Great Sankey High School website, we are a Teaching School and a School Direct school but more importantly we are a school that is child-centred and one that believes that students come first.
Our ethos is about people, based on the individual, every student being of worth and valued by their community. Education here happens ‘with’ students and ‘for’ them, not ‘to’ them. We want every student to have the best school experience possible and to be inspired by the opportunities offered and the success they achieve.
We have nearly 2000 students from 11 – 18 years of age and our staff are dedicated to delivering an ever-changing curriculum in a vibrant and exciting way. Our young people are focused, determined and motivated to do the best they can do and tell us if we get it wrong.
Please do contact school if you require any further information.
From the Headteacher, John Shannon
Welcome to Great Sankey High School. Our ten core values are the cornerstone of our happy, purposeful and thriving school. Learning is the central focus of all that is done at school and we are committed to inspiring each and every child to discover and develop their individual talents.
We encourage our pupils to believe that with hard work, anything is possible, andwe expect the highest standards of behaviour and academic effort – and the utmost dedication from our teaching and support staff. We are committed to giving pupils rewarding experiences in and beyond the classroom. We offer outstanding opportunities essential for personal, intellectual, emotional and social growth and provide a huge range of extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities. Our aim is to ensure that our pupils aspire to achieve great things and fulfil their potential, so that when they leave school they are not only prepared academically, but also inspired to make a proactive, positive and lasting contribution to society and live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.
Great Sankey is a dynamic and constantly improving school, where all members of our community are encouraged to work in an atmosphere of mutual respect. All our pupils are supported by a strong pastoral system, which ensures they receive the individual care and attention they need.As a result, Great Sankey has an exceptional reputation for high educational standards and academic success.
The positive relationships we build with parents are a real strength of our school and the support they give us contributes significantly to our success. This website can only provide you with a brief introduction to the school. The best way to appreciate what Great Sankey High School has to offer is to see the school on a working day.
