Friday 2nd September 2016 – School return for new Year 7 students and 6th Form ONLY
Monday 5th September 2016 – Full school return
Week Beginning: Monday 11th July
Well done to all at Hilbre High School for having such an excellent year. We started school in September with a clear vision to develop and improve a number of procedures we have at the school and what a difference it has made. It is a testimony to the hard-work and positivity we have at Hilbre, that we have the Ofsted judgement of ‘good’ for all areas:
Effectiveness of leadership and management: Good
Of course, our journey is never-complete. We close this year with OFSTED telling us we are a good school but take heed of their advice about what we need to do to become an outstanding school.
As the year has progressed, there are many stand-out moments. However, it is the general feel of the school that seems to have noticeably changed. Students are healthier as they go outside much more; they are better focused on their studies. We have given Pupil Premium a big focus over the year and seen significant improvement in the progress made by students to whom this applies. Students have a better appreciation of the education they are receiving and a better work ethic. Once more, it has been a pleasure to be able to thank students for their year’s hard-work by sending them out on a number of school trips at the end of term.
Have a terrific summer holiday.

Thank you to Margaret Greenwood MP for her attendance at our highly successful Apprenticeship Evening. Pictured here with Mr Bellamy (right) and Mr Trought (left).
It was a delight on Remembrance Day to see some of our students in school wearing their cadets uniform and showing such respect on such an important occasion.
Duke of Edinburgh Bronze on Practice Trip
Congratulations to the Bronze Group ‘A’ who walked around Cheshire for their practice expedition. Although most groups got lost at some point, and many had tired legs or blisters, the expedition was a great success and has prepared them for their final assessment on 27th June.
Supporting Sophie's Choice Campaign
Following the tragic death of Wirral teenager Sophie Jones and the make-up free 'selfies' that thousands have taken part in via social networking sites, the Sixth Form girls were inspired to come into school without an ounce of make up on. they managed to raise an amazing £150 in the first hour.
