Community involvement and links are also manifest in student placements, musical concerts, the annual Arts Festival that includes all of the local primary schools and wide-ranging activity in support of local charities. The school acts as the host for the annual Wilmslow Festival: a major community event.
It is through the partnership of school, home and community that we are able to offer our students every opportunity to be involved in a wide range of activities and events which contribute to their experiences and awareness of their role and responsibilities in school and the wider community.
Our students are very aware and keen to be involved in events beyond the day-to day and demonstrate a mature and positive attitude to working with and helping others. They are encouraged to balance personal challenge and success with commitment to others in all activities within and beyond school.
The school’s ‘Parents Xtra’ organises a wide range of social, educational and fund-raising activities with different groups of parents (sports, arts, general) contributing to the overall organisation.
The school has developed strong links with the local community and major local employers. Currently all Year 10 students have a one-week work experience placement, with further course related work experience in Year 12.
Community involvement and links are also manifest in student placements, musical concerts, with sports festivals that include many of the local primary schools and wide-ranging activity in support of local charities. The school works in partnership with community groups to hold the annual Wilmslow Show: a major community event.
The school is used extensively outside the core day during weekends and the holidays. This aspect of the school’s operation is managed within ‘High Leisure’ which manages the school facilities for the benefit of the community as a whole.
Our School Aims encapsulate our aims for Community Links:
- To encourage the development of broadly educated, happy, confident, self-disciplined, self-motivated individuals equipped for adult life
- To establish a culture that values achievement, encourages students to develop their full potential and recognises individual success
- To promote a partnership between the school and the community, encouraging students to be responsible, caring members of society
