About Ladybridge High School
Message from the Headteacher
I took up the post of Headteacher at Ladybridge High School in the summer term 2019. I am proud to lead this diverse, happy and successful school. A new school website is currently under construction, a microsite is available here to enable you to learn more about our school. I would also like to encourage you to watch our promotional film, which is available above and on the microsite.
In all, over 37 different languages are spoken at Ladybridge. We are extremely proud of our rich diversity and the strength of relationships across the school. Staff are committed to ‘going the extra mile’, and learners appreciate this. Visitors to the school often remark upon the school’s sense of warmth, of purpose and of pride.
There are significant opportunities for professional learning and development for successful candidates. We aspire to be an ‘evidence-informed’ school where teachers are encouraged to read, research, collaborate and take calculated risks in the classroom. Teachers have significantly more non-contact time than the national average to provide time to plan high quality lessons and to ensure an appropriate work-life balance.
We are currently undergoing building refurbishment and a building extension. The extension will allow us to accommodate more learners to meet the rising demand from families who wish to send their children to Ladybridge. The refurbishment will enable us to provide first-rate facilities across all subject areas and will add to an already distinctive and impressive school site that includes a farm, leisure centre and swimming pool.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to visit the school prior to submitting an application.
