Dear Friends of Ladybridge,
Ladybridge High School was oversubscribed for September 2013, with a waiting list. We see this as a clear recognition of the strong reputation that the school has in the local community and beyond. Our aim is to ensure that all students are well educated, well rounded, confident, secure, respectful and of smart appearance. In short, we expect them to be the best they can be.
As you may already be aware, our August 2010 results placed the school in the Top 100 Most Improved Schools in England. Our August 2011 results placed us as 32nd Most Improved School in England. Our August 2012 results saw the school becoming the 52nd Top Performing School in England for year on year improvement. Finally, in June 2013, we were delighted to receive the SSAT 2013 Educational Outcomes Award. All of these awards really do inspire us to continue to be the best we can be year on year. There is no doubt that we are a determined team and we will most definitely continue to strive for the best achievement and the best opportunities possible for all our very special Ladybridge children.
Our mantra here at Ladybridge High School is that ‘if it isn’t good enough for our own children, then it isn’t good enough for Ladybridge children either.’ Without exception, our expectations are high in terms of achievement, conduct, appearance and manners and we do expect each and every student to live up to those expectations. We see our parents and the community as true partners in this and we really do want to work with you. Just imagine what we can achieve by working together!
I feel deeply privileged to be the Headteacher of this ‘Family School’. Fortunately, we are a small enough school to be able to get to know every child individually and to be able to understand what it is that makes each child ‘tick’. This enables us to ensure that every child’s potential is maximised. Relationships at Ladybridge High School are exceptionally strong and we all enjoy learning together.
Attendance at Ladybridge is above the National Average for all schools in the country. This is because students feel happy, confident and engaged under our care and it is a joy to see how proud they are of their achievements and how thrilled they are when they share them with us all.
Our aim for 2013/2014 is to become an outstanding school ‘across the board’ and we have a very strong platform upon which to build. We were, indeed, delighted to have been judged as Outstanding for Leadership and Management and Good overall in our Ofsted 2013 Inspection. Morale is very high right across this school and we will reach our goal.
Finally, as you can probably see, Ladybridge High School is my passion. I am deeply committed to remaining at this school and making sure that each and every child in our Ladybridge Family leaves us at the end of his or her school life with the very brightest of futures and the very happiest of school memories.
With best wishes,
