Poynton High School and Performing Arts College is an 11-18 school providing high quality education to the communities of Poynton, Disley, Adlington and Pott Shrigley. An increasing number of parents each year are also choosing to send their children to Poynton High School from further afield, and we welcome this widening community.
With just over 1560 students on roll including a sixth form of over 300, our school is large and this allows us to offer a very wide range of subjects and opportunities beyond the classroom.
We are proud of the high standards we achieve academically for young people of all abilities. We are equally proud of the way we help our young people grow into responsible and healthy adults. Through Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education, Drama, Dance, Music, P.E., a thriving House system, a caring and supportive Pastoral system and a wealth of clubs and activities, we seek to fulfil our mission statement:
Poynton High School and Performing Arts College is consistently one of the highest achieving schools in the North West. Each year many of our students move on to Higher Education studying the full range of degree courses at Universities across the UK including Oxford and Cambridge. Over the years we have developed excellent relationships with many higher education establishments. At the same time as helping our older students to achieve their full academic potential, we also encourage them to work in a variety of ways with younger students in the school. In this way we make the most of the opportunities offered by being an 11-18 educational community and all students benefit.
We believe strongly in being fully involved in our community. We work closely with our local primary schools to build curriculum and social links and, as the geographical area for our intake extends, we are developing our transition programme to help all our young people to make the transfer from primary to secondary education successfully. We also have a large community links programme, in which our students have the opportunity to work in the local community, helping others and learning much themselves. A Work Experience programme for all of Year 10 is also a valuable opportunity to help students learn about the world of work. We are an inclusive community and celebrate our diversity, not least in the extensive range of activities we offer which allow our students to extend their community links working with others nationally and globally too.
