Headteacher’s Welcome

 

Welcome to Glossopdale School. Our School is a warm and caring community for all students. We celebrate diversity and believe strongly in providing an environment where all young people thrive.

Our core purpose is to support students of all abilities and backgrounds to develop high aspirations and achieve their potential. We encourage all students to work hard and aim high in order to succeed both academically and personally.

We nurture and build ambition for our students. Whilst your children grow into young people with us, we will open opportunities, broaden horizons and introduce challenges ensuring that in our five years together they are becoming the best that they can be.

We fully recognise that students have different interests, dreams, abilities and needs and our school’s broad and flexible curriculum reflects this. Staff are qualified and experienced in ensuring that students achieve their full potential regardless of their starting points. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum form Year 7 through to Year 11. Our curriculum extends beyond the classroom and our students are encouraged to participate in many other learning experiences that do not begin and end on the bell.

All students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and conduct. Discipline in the school is clear and consistent to ensure an orderly and effective learning environment in which we expect high standards of work, behaviour and uniform.

I am extremely proud to be the Executive Headteacher of Glossopdale School and consider it a privilege to be a part of such a vibrant and caring learning community.

Mrs Debbie McGloin
