HEADTEACHER'S WELCOME

headteacherWerneth School is an 11-16 mixed, non-selective maintained secondary school in Stockport.

Our school is located in brand new premises in Bredbury, and is served primarily by 9 feeder primary schools. We work closely with our primary colleagues to ensure transition from primary is as seamless as possible.

Werneth is renowned for its inclusive ethos, as can be seen by our recent Quality Mark accreditation for Inclusion. The school is committed to the development of a broad and balanced all-through curriculum, matched to our students' diverse needs from Year 7 to Year 11.

2016 has led to the introduction of four core principles that will guide our development and practice as a school moving into the future:

KNOW OUR CHILDREN WELL

Ensuring that our students are recognised for their achievements, and their needs are both understood and met on a daily basis.

PARTNERS IN LEARNING

Working productively with our students to create ownership and pride in their learning and educational experiences.

ENJOY AND ACHIEVE

Creating a curriculum fit for the needs of every student, and allowing them to be positive and aspirational about their future.

CHARACTER FOR LEARNING

Developing the characteristics of effective learning... independence, resilience, leadership and respect.

Our school is a strategic partner of two aspirational companies: Adidas and the Manchester United Foundation. We use both of these partners to deliver a wide range of educational experiences that complement our practice in school. The aim is to develop the leadership potential and skills of our students, and enable them to become successful young adults.

YEAR 9 PARENTS EVENING

 

 

Year 9 Parents Evening Thursday 27th April 2017, 4-8pm

ENTRANCES FOR OUR NEW SCHOOL

There are two entrances to our new building for the foreseeable future. Located behind our old building, this will remain the case until our old building is demolished over the coming months. Deliveries will enter at our Higson Avenue entrance.

If you are a parent or visitor coming into school, you will only be able to access school down the entrance to the left of our site, as you look at the school from the main road. Parking here is limited, and there is a narrow entrance lane. You will walk around to the visitor entrance, and use the intercom to gain access to our reception area.

SPORTS HALL

Our Sports Hall has had a 'face lift' and is now available for community lettings

Posted on Friday 21st April 2017

Welcome back and I hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter break!  We have had a positive return to school this week, as we begin the final countdown for our Year 11s.  I am hopeful that all Year 11s are studying hard now, and they received that message in their assembly from Deputy headteacher Mrs Foy this week.  Hard work now yields good GCSE results!

In other matters:

  • Please see the pictures below, showing some new artwork in school and the development of the front of school.  We will be focusing this term on brightening up our new building with some interactive displays, and our students will be working with us to create those displays.

  • We are looking now towards a completion date for our school premises of July 2017.  However, as the building contractors are now completing demolition and moving towards landscaping the front of school, it has led to a significant reduction in the size of our car parking facilities.  Could I ask parents not to enter our parking areas unless absolutely necessary during the school day and at beginning/end of school.
  • Year 9 Parents’ Evening is next Thursday, 27th April starting at 4pm.  We hope to have access to Harrytown School’s car park for parents.

Have a good weekend.
