Consultation on draft Admissions Policy for 2023/24

Lymm High School is now consulting on the draft admissions policy for 2023/24. There is one proposed change to the admissions policy from that which was adopted when the school became an Academy in 2012 and is currently in force. This is a proposed amendment to the third category of the oversubscription criteria, which relates to medical conditions and has been updated to aid clarity. If you would like to send a response or make a comment in relation to the proposed arrangements, you can do so by emailing or writing as follows:

The consultation period will run from Friday 15th October 2021 – 3rd December 2021

Wellbeing Evening – 17th November 2021

On Wednesday 17th November (6–7pm) we are inviting parents and carers to attend school for a mental health information evening in the Main Hall.

The mental health and wellbeing of our young people is vitally important and now, more than ever, we hope to encourage our students to speak out, ask questions and access the support they need for their wellbeing.

The Wellbeing Evening will include a presentation from our Mental Health Lead Mrs Hunter alongside information from the School Nurse service and Kooth.com. The evening will explore a variety of mental health difficulties faced by young people together with practical strategies and advice for parents and carers to help support our students with their wellbeing.

We look forward to welcoming you all to the evening.

A’ level Results 2021

It has obviously been an exceptionally unusual year for exams and results, but the feelings of joy, pride and relief amongst students and staff have been just as strong as ever this morning.

The students certainly should feel proud too. They have had to put up with so much this year, not just academically but socially as well, and they have shown remarkable forbearance and grit to maintain the levels of performance they have. There can be no doubt that their successes today have been hard-earned and thoroughly deserved. It has been a real privilege to work with such wonderful young people and we are delighted to see them do so well.

Lymm High is World Class!

The school was invited to apply for the World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM) and is one of just 12 secondary schools to have been successful in receiving the prestigious accreditation this year.

WCSQM is a UK charity that works to accredit the best non-selective state schools across the UK with the World Class quality mark accreditation. Specifically, it is concerned with developing the skills, competencies and characteristics that young people need to thrive in an ever-changing global economy. According to the charity, the starting point for applications is that schools “have a track record, data and evidence, internal and external, that indicates at their next Ofsted inspection they would be deemed ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted”.

Mr Williams said: “This is a significant achievement and we are all very proud of what it says about our school community. Particular thanks go to the students who did such a fantastic job of leading this bid.”

The students involved in the project included Ciara Bennett, Evie France, Beau Harry, Thomas Lea, Emma Parkinson and Jack Powell.

Being a WCSQM school will open up some great opportunities for both staff and students over the next few years. Having the accreditation gives the school access to the WCSQM framework that will help all students to develop and demonstrate world class skills and characteristics across areas including learning, leadership, community and the workplace.

“The values of the organisation very much align with our own in terms of working to make sure that students leave us not just with excellent academic qualifications but also as well-rounded, socially responsible young people equipped with the knowledge and skills required to thrive in the modern world”, said Mr Williams.
