Message from the Principal

It’s difficult to believe that I’m into my second term as Principal. So much has been achieved in such a short time and the response from both students and staff has been fantastic. I’d also like to thank all parents for your support as we continue to raise standards at the Academy.

Our staff are extremely ambitious. We have belief in the potential of all our students and a culture of high expectations is being developed.

As an experienced school leader, I know only too well that support and encouragement at home is a major factor in a child's academic performance.

Goole Academy is also fast developing a reputation for sporting success in local and national competitions. There is also a very wide range of extra-curricular opportunities at the school including: dance, drama and foreign visits; and the staff put in an incredible amount of hard work in providing these opportunities for our students.

Rehearsals are currently underway for the Goole Academy production of Fiddler on the Roof in early March and I hope you will be able to join us for this to see the amazing talent on offer.

I would ask all parents/carers to continue to support the Academy as it moves forward. We insist on the highest standards of uniform and behaviour and, by working in partnership, I'm confident we can build a community based on enjoyment, hard work and respect.

At Goole Academy we are confident about our future.  We hope that visitors will gain a sense of our caring ethos, positivity and determination. I look forward to continuing to work with you during 2015 to build an Academy that our young people deserve and of which we can all be proud.

Please use our Academy email address (wearelistening@goolehighschool.org) if you have any concerns, or need help in any way.
