Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to Ellesmere Park High School " Vibrant Inclusive and Proud "
The moment we have been waiting many years for finally arrived and we are now officially Ellesmere Park High School.
We were handed the keys at 7am on Monday 1st September and spent the first 2 days unpacking 3000 boxes !The students and their parents were welcomed to the new school from Wednesday 3rd September and it was an absolute joy to watch their faces as they entered the completed building for the first time. We now have the facilities and resources that our students have long deserved and we will be able to use the new teaching spaces in many innovative ways in order to enhance the students’ learning.
MEN School of The Year Award/The Real School Guide 2014
As well as being on the shortlist of 4 out of 1,000 eligible secondary schools for this award we were delighted to be ranked 5th in Salford in the RSG. This takes account of a whole range of factors including attainment and we were awarded the highest grade of 5*s for teaching. This is an acknowledgement of how hard our staff work in order to ensure that our students achieve in every aspect of school life. We welcome all students to our community and will ensure that every child succeeds.
Ellesmere Park was the highest ranking non-denominational/ selective school in Salford on this list.
Before that we were delighted to welcome back our Year 11 students to receive their exam results. Once again many students surpassed their challenging targets and the 54%5 A*-C including English and mathematics was 4% higher than the Salford average. This is the first time that the school has achieved above the Salford average and when you factor in that the attainment at Key Stage 2 of that particular cohort of students was significantly below national average on entry to the school you can see that their progress was good. Once again English results are significantly above the National Average which is calculated using all schools in the country – most of whom have higher Key Stage 2 figures than Ellesmere Park.
The % of students achieving 5+A-A*was 4% higher than the challenging targets the school was set based on prior attainment.
