As is the case in pretty much all secondary schools, one thing we could improve at Lymm High School is the amount of litter at breaks and lunchtimes. Please click here to read a letter regarding this issue and new rewards and sanctions that are going to be in place under our new initiative Respect Lymm: put your litter in the bin.
Preparing for assessments is a skill that will help your child throughout their education, especially for their GCSEs and any qualification routes they choose post-16. That is why we feel that the end of year assessments, that they will be sitting after the half term break, are an important part of this learning journey.

Many thanks to all parents/carers who recently took the time to complete our parent questionnaire. We had 228 responses, providing us with a very good picture of parent views.
The survey results showed that the vast majority of parents feel really positive about the school, which is supported by the evidence from recent parent forums and previous questionnaires. Nevertheless, we remain committed to doing all we can to improving the quality of all-round education provided by the school and will not rest until every single parent is happy with what we are doing.
A full response from us to the key points made, especially those raised as areas for improvement, can be found by clicking here.
Once again we’d like to give parents the opportunity of ordering summer bedding plants and hanging baskets. Orders and payment need to be returned to school by Friday 5th April 2019 and plants will be available for collection from the school allotment on Friday 24th May 2019.
All funds raised from the sale of these plants goes towards the support of projects in school. Click here to download the 2019 bedding plant & hanging basket list.
Thank you to all those of you who came to the drugs information evening this week. We had over 170 parents in attendance and hope you found the evening worthwhile.
A few of you left notes asking for certain information (for example, a ‘crib sheet’ with slang terms used by young people for different drugs) or additional questions to be answered, and we will post this information as soon as we can. In the meantime:
