Welcome to Great Sankey High School

Dear Friends of Great Sankey High School

I take great pleasure in welcoming you to our website.  I am immensely proud to be Headteacher at Great Sankey High School, our students are an absolute delight and it is our aim to continue to ensure that each and every child is supported to reach their full potential and beyond, helping them to develop their many talents – academic, sporting, musical or aesthetic so that they leave Great Sankey High School fully equipped to take an active role in their community.

I was delighted to receive numerous applications for the post of Head Boy and head Girl (a practice which I introduced to the school last year).  We were delighted  to appoint Ben as Head Boy and Robyn as Head Girl, ably supported by Josh our Deputy Head Boy and Rosie our Deputy Head  Girl  – they along with our 12 House Captains help to develop our Student Leadership Teams.

We have been re-designated as a National Teaching School from September 2014.  Our Executive Headteacher Alan Davies, a National Leader of Education will continue to work with our partners in Warrington and beyond to develop our Teaching School Alliance.

Our Sixth Form is a thriving learning environment with over 400 students.  As well as a broad academic programme we offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities such as Mock Bar Trials and Extended Project Qualification, Cabin Crew, Sports leader, Young enterprise and Pre Teacher Qualification.

We are very fortunate to have staff and governors who are passionate about our students and our school.  The whole school community works hard together in order to achieve the best we possibly can, regardless of age or ability.

I hope you find the information available on the website useful and if you require any further information then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I look forward to welcoming you to the school and working with you.
