Werneth 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.
