“SECONDARY school is where students arrive as children and leave as adults and we want to make sure that when they leave they are awesome, not just ordinary.”
Danuta Tomasz, David Flowitt
Here at the Goole High School Learning Quarter we want every student who walks through our doors to fulfil their dreams and we believe that there is no one-size-fits-all way of doing that. So we have reorganised our large and successful 11-18 secondary school into four small schools, each with a distinct purpose but united under one vision:
To inspire our kids to change their world
Students will start their journey at the 11-14 Prep School where they will gain the skills and abilities to be successful level 2 learners. After that they will be able to choose one of three pathways: the 14-19 Academy and Sixth Form; the 14-19 Create Studio School or the 14-19 Vocational Training School. Each pathway will lead to a core suite of qualifications delivered in a way that suits each student best with opportunities to get involved in a limitless range of extra curricular opportunities.
The Goole High School Learning Quarter is at the heart of its local community working in partnership with business leaders to offer quality education, community events and facilities to ensure a brighter economic future for the young people of Goole and the surrounding area.
There has never been a better time to be part of our learning community – but please don’t just take our word for it; come and see for yourself.
We would like to reassure parents and carers of students who will be sitting exams at school this year that there is nothing to be worried about following the recent inspection from Ofsted.
The school remains on target for achieving results this year that will be even better than last year’s historic high. As usual, there are revision classes for some subjects taking place during half term which students should attend and, as soon as we are back after half term, work will continue to make sure students get the exam results they need.
The school already has a comprehensive improvement plan in place that addresses the issues highlighted by the inspection. All the staff and Governors are united in our resolve that the judgement will in no way deter our drive to be outstanding. In the meantime, we remain as focused as ever on helping all our students to achieve – or exceed – their exam targets.
