About Falinge Park High School
The school is an 11-16 community comprehensive High School in the Falinge area of Rochdale. It is mixed gender with approximately 1160 pupils on roll. We have a diverse intake and students embrace the many different cultures within the area. This is reflected within the latest OFSTED report.
Students here make good progress because they receive good teaching. The school is third in local league tables for Value Added. In 2012 we were third in local league tables for Maintained Schools in 5+ A*-C including English and Mathematics. Results are particularly impressive in the core subjects of English and Mathematics. Key appointments at both Senior and Middle Management levels together with new Main Scale teachers are driving forward the school improvement agenda.
We are at an exciting stage of a new build programme with the new school just starting to take shape in front of the existing building. Staff and pupils will be moving into the new building in January 2014. The existing building will then be demolished and landscaping will take place. This will include an amphitheatre, informal seating, wild flower areas and an area for school to grow its own vegetables.
We are looking forward to having new facilities but strongly believe that a school’s ethos comes from the values of the students and staff. OFSTED judged school as outstanding in a number of areas including Behaviour, Care, Guidance and Support and Social Cohesion.
We are very proud of all students and staff. We are committed to unlocking potential in both groups. We are all learners and aspire to live up to our motto “Pride in Excellence”. We seek to employ staff who are self-critical and committed to making no excuses for student under performance. We have a ‘can do’ culture. A good education is the one thing students’ gain which helps them to unlock their dreams, raises aspirations and leads to a happy and productive life in society.
