Welcome to Falinge Park High School
Our school is a warm, welcoming environment where children and staff are well cared for and supported. We moved to our new building in 2014 and added a new block in September 2015 to support our compelling learning experience in Modern Foreign Languages.
Our school is set in beautiful grounds overlooking the Pennine town of Rochdale – the birth of the Co-operative movement. The facilities in the school are of the highest standard and pupils and staff have access to two sports halls, astro-turf, gym, fully equipped drama studio, music practice rooms, bright, airy classrooms and break-out hubs. The school building centres around our “Heart space.”
But a school and an education is about more than a building – it is about the people in the building – and we hope our website gives you a flavour of the soul of the school.
As a community, we are proud of our children’s performance in external examinations in 2015 which has seen us improve again. We are also proud of the fact we are currently in the top 20% of schools nationally for the value we add to our children’s academic progress. We are proud of our good Ofsted in 2013 and are committed to being a community school which serves a diverse community. Yet we know there is more we can do to ensure every child and adult at Falinge gets the best possible experience during their time here. To do this we have identified two objectives:
To create a COMPELLING LEARNING EXPERIENCE.
To create a COMPELLING CULTURE OF CREATIVITY AND CONSISTENCY.
We have agreed the best way to achieve this is by believing in people and their potential and by committing to positive relationships.
The actions we take to support this are based in the best professional research and underpinned by systematic, consistent evaluation and review.
Underpinning all this is our resolute commitment to keeping children safe at Falinge and making sure they are happy, achieve their best and enjoy school.
But why don’t you see for yourself? If you would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and speak to our staff. You are always welcome at Falinge.
