As Executive Headteacher, I joined the school on the 1st of January 2018, and our Ofsted took place in my first week in post. The report describes us very well. I encourage you to read it carefully. We are receiving support from Carnforth High School, which I also oversee and Ripley St Thomas Academy through both the TSA and the new Multi-Academy Trust, The Bay Learning Trust. I firmly believe that with two strong local schools supporting us, we will transform life for the staff and students at Morecambe Community High School within an 18 month period.
Morecambe is an area of significant coastal deprivation, with 35% Pupil premium students, a population with a prior attainment just below the national average and a small population of EAL students. These young people need excellent role models and leaders willing to engage with the local culture in which they live.
I would warmly encourage serious candidates to visit the school, or to book a telephone conversation, to be able to fully appreciate our capacity and potential.
The Science Faculty is very large, and popular at KS4 and KS5, recruiting strong A-Level groups each year.
