Our Aims

We welcome students of all abilities, aptitudes and interests from a wide range of backgrounds.  Our number one aim is ‘Achievement for All’ and we pride ourselves on our reputation for academic success.  We are successful because we have high expectations of all of our students, and because we create a learning environment underpinned by a culture of respect where individuals are nurtured and supported.

Ours is a forward-thinking school with innovative approaches to teaching and learning. We have invested in new technology, which means that our students are equipped for a 21st century workplace; able to apply their knowledge and skills creatively. We are also proud of the way that we prepare students to be lifelong learners; questioning, resilient and confident young people.

Importantly we want our students to leave with happy memories of their time at Haslingden High and we provide many enrichment opportunities outside of the  classroom for students to develop the talents, teamwork and leadership skills that will enable them to be citizens of Britain and the world.

We are a diverse community where students from a range of backgrounds form positive relationships with each other and with staff, based on trust and mutual respect. Visitors to the school comment on the happy and calm atmosphere which allows all students to flourish.

Our aim for our students is more diverse than them simply gaining excellent academic qualifications and we endeavour to genuinely provide a holistic education that prepares our students for whatever the future may hold.
