We hope that you and your family are all safe and well and that the start of the new academic year has been a positive one for you. It has been an energetic and exciting start for us here at Great Sankey High School and our students, especially our new Year 7 Cohort, the Class of 2027, have started the year with positive attitudes, are full of enthusiasm and ready to learn.

Although our Year 7 students have only just joined Great Sankey High, the time has already come for us to begin preparation for the Class of 2028! With this in mind, we would like to invite you and your son/daughter to our GSHS Open Evening, This year we are delighted to be able to open our doors and demonstrate what makes GSHS “great in name, and greatest together” We are aware that some families may have commitments, or unable to attend as such in addition to our face-to-face visits we will be maintaining our virtual Open Evening.
