Headteacher’s Welcome

A warm welcome to Wilmslow High School

At Wilmslow we want our young people to BE@Wilmslow.

By this, we don’t just mean that they should ‘be at Wilmslow’.  We want them to feel that they can thrive and flourish at our school as we believe that this is the best way for young people to fulfil their potential.  Therefore we want them to truly ‘BE’.

Our three messages are:

  • Be proud – this links to the importance that we place on the character virtues of Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Empathy
  • Be strong – we can’t promise our students that life, learning and work will always be easy but we do want to support them to be strong
  • Be yourself – we want all our students to be the best version of themselves, not a second-rate version of anyone else

We care deeply about all our students here at Wilmslow and we try hard to ensure that we are getting it right for them.  I hope that the two short videos below give you a sense of how we do this.

We are very proud of our students.We are very proud of our school and community.We hope that you enjoy looking through our website and that it gives you a sense of who we are at Wilmslow.

With best wishes
