"LOSTOCK HIGH SCHOOL CONTINUES TO BE A GOOD SCHOOL"
Having been inspected in this first half-term of the 2021-2022 academic year, we're proud to announce that we have once again been judged to be a good school.
The two day inspection took place between 21st-22nd September with inspectors meeting with staff, students, and governors. Highlights include comments about student friendliness and values, the high expectations of staff, the ambitious curriculum, and the range of extra-curricular activities.
Look out for an interview, with Mrs Brindley, about the judgment in the next addition of our student newsletter later in the term.
