Values and Ethos

We are an academic comprehensive...

...dedicated to creating Walkden STARS

Walkden High School is proud to be at the heart of its local community. We are a school with a strong family feel and our aim is to develop students who are

Sensible, Thoughtful, Ambitious, Respectful and Supportive.
Ambition is at the heart of our ethos – we want our pupils to be the best that they can be academically, culturally and socially. We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence in our GCSEs. We show amazing team spirit in the sporting and arts arenas. We build strong social awareness through our charity and community work.
We take great care in developing the character traits that wrap around ambition in our ethos. These are the attributes that will ensure that our pupils develop into the rounded members of our community that we know they can be. Our curriculum is broad and is almost entirely delivered through GCSEs.
We invest hugely in providing our students with the advice and guidance that allows them to successfully move onto the next phase of their education. We are proud of our students’ achievements – they are all Walkden STARS.
