Welcome to Longdendale High School
“We endeavour to achieve and aspire to be successful.”
'The headteacher provides a tenacious focus on improvement and sharp spotlight on building higher aspirations for all.' Ofsted 2012
Longdendale High School is a thriving 11-16 school built on strong values that inform all that we do. We have high standards where everyone is challenged and supported to flourish and encouraged to work hard to fulfil their aspirations. We expect every member of our school to be the best they can be. We have high expectations of all our staff, students and our wider community. Together we work hard so that everyone can achieve and feel safe and happy, ready to go on to have an exciting future.
We are proud to be celebrating the most successful period in the school’s history. Strong levels of achievement - in comparison to both local and national figures - are a clear sign of the value students and parents place on being part of Longdendale High School. High standards of teaching from staff and excellent learning from students, alongside the proactive encouragement of parents, have all contributed to the school’s recent success. Everyone at Longdendale is fully committed to maximising the achievement of every student.
Longdendale is a happy and successful school that has undergone dynamic improvement in recent years. Our whole school community has much to be proud of. We value our students as our greatest asset and their contribution to the school is magnificent – their determination, creativity and willingness to participate are the cornerstones of the success of the school.
We believe that working in partnership with parents is vitally important to supporting our teaching staff in fulfilling our core purpose of endeavouring to achieve and aspiring to be successful.
Safeguarding young people in our school
Safeguarding young people is the responsibility of everyone. As such all the staff in our school have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of young people. This duty is placed upon school by Section 175 of the Education Act 2002. This means that we have Designated Officers for Child Protection. In our school these are Mrs J Noble and Mrs J Willis.
