Headteacher's Welcome

Lostock College has a well established reputation for excellence in education and developing children holistically. Our work is founded on the belief that all children are of equal value and that it is our task to develop the abilities and talents that all undoubtedly possess.

Our hugely talented and committed staff team makes sure that our curriculum, guidance, care and support meets the different needs of every young person. We pride ourselves on having high expectations which ensure that our students are well organised, caring, supportive of each other and also personally ambitious. Our small numbers mean that we know every child and their families well, thus allowing for greater communication and partnership working for the benefit of all of our children.

We expect the highest achievement from our students and consequently are not willing to settle for anything less; we celebrate achievement in all its forms and from students of all ability.  Above all, we are committed to working together as a team. We believe that by working together we can ensure opportunity and success for everyone. Every young person has unlimited potential and together we can make sure that this potential is fulfilled.

And finally.....

After a great deal of soul searching I have decided that after 40 years I will be retiring from teaching at the end of this term. There are many different considerations that have made my mind up at this time.  It has been a very difficult decision as there is never a good time to leave, there is always something that needs developing or finishing or something else that needs to be done.

 I am confident that the governors will appoint someone who will lead the school forward successfully. 

Thankyou to all who supported our Open Evening, we look forward to seeing you again very soon.  For anyone who couldn't attend please call any time for an appointment to view our fantastic school.
