It is my pleasure, as headteacher of Beeslack Community High School, to welcome you to our website. We are particularly proud of our website as it has been developed and is maintained by a team of senior students and staff. At ‘Beeslack’ we are committed to promoting an ethos of responsibility in our young people and developing leadership qualities which enable them to contribute effectively to their school community.
The school was founded in 1984 and has a role of 860 pupils. We have always sought to work closely with our community and in 1994 ‘Beeslack’ became a designated community school. This school provides an excellent resource and focus for the local community and our programme continues to develop in response to a wide range of community interests and needs.
‘Beeslack’ is situated in the beautiful grounds of a spacious 17.5 acre site, formerly part of the estate of Beeslack House and is a highly attractive and inspiring setting for young people to learn and develop. The modern purpose built accommodation and high quality resources are complemented by excellent teaching and learning supported by our highly dedicated staff team. Our pupils benefit from the extensive extra curricular programme provided by the school which is unquestionably impacts on the community life of the school, developing our young people as confident individuals and effective contributors to our school and the wider community.
Developing a strong partnership all our parents is a priority and we all know that your support is crucial to your child’s success. We are committed to keeping you informed about your youngster’s progress and development through regular reporting, parent’s information evenings, newsletters and through our website our website. We encourage you to attend parent’s evening, social events and to get involved in the life of the school through joining “Beeslack Association”. We operate an open door policy and you can contact us by phone and email or visit the school if you have any concerns about your youngster’s progress or wellbeing.
We are very proud of our school and the success of all of our young people. We hope that our website conveys the sense of community which we endeavour to create for our young people: a community of caring, of warmth, of purpose and of opportunity – academic, sporting and social.
