Introduction from the Headteacher
Welcome to Fred Longworth High School. Our aim is simple – to inspire all our students to achieve their best through “belonging, engaging and succeeding together”.
We have a tradition of achieving excellent examination results and students are given a strong head start in life. Our 2016 results continue this tradition, with 70% achieving 5 A*-C GCSE grades including English and Maths. Excellent teaching is at the heart of our success. Committed and enthusiastic teachers deliver high quality, enjoyable lessons that encourage a lifelong love of learning.
SIMS Online – for Parents and Students
*** For the Academic Year 2017/18, we are introducing our new ‘SIMS Parent and Student Apps’ ***
From September 2017 we’ll be inviting you to download our new apps or use our new SIMS Online website for sharing information with you about your child’s school life. The new app will allow you to monitor your child’s progress in school more closely than ever before. You will have immediate access to your child’s attendance and behaviour records, interim reports and you will be able to monitor the homework that has been set on a daily basis.
Open Evening 2017 – Thank You!
We held our annual Open Evening on Thursday 21 September 2017.
Once again it was extremely well attended and visitors to the school had the opportunity to sample a wide range of activities in each of the subject areas.
There were also many displays and events representing the rich and varied extra-curricular activities that are such a key part of life at the school.
One area of particular interest was the Photo Booth run by students in our Art Department and a selection of the images from the evening can be viewed on our Flickr page at https://flic.kr/s/aHsm5tXZ3h
We would like to thank all those who attended and we hope that the evening was beneficial, especially for prospective students and their parents.
During the evening visitors were issued with a ‘passport’ to present to each faculty for stamping, with fully completed ones entering our prize draw. The lucky winners, who each received a pair of beats headphones were Darcy Warhurst from Tyldesley St. George’s CE Central, Logan Love from Sacred Heart Hindsford and Hannah Bradwell from Garrett Hall Primary. Well done to our winners and thank you to everyone who entered.
Anyone who didn’t have the opportunity to attend or who wish to take another look at the school is welcome to arrange a school visit by contacting Mrs. Marland or by making an appointment through Reception.
