Our Values & Ethos



We are a high-performing comprehensive school with a proud tradition of service to our community over 400 years.

As set out in our School Charter, Lymm High School exists to enable every single student to:

  • Be successful and achieve their full potential
  • Enjoy learning and become independent lifelong learners
  • Become socially responsible citizens and members of the community
  • Become confident and capable individuals

We aim to achieve this by emphasising three simple priorities:

  • An uncompromising focus on high academic standards and excellent teaching and learning
  • Encouraging participation in a wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular activities and opportunities to develop leadership skills
  • Promoting the importance of being decent, socially responsible members of the community
