Welcome from our C.E.O.

Welcome to the Hazel Wood High School website. Oak Learning Partnership is a Trust of schools across three phases; primary, secondary and special in Bury, Greater Manchester, working together to ensure our children have a highly effective education in a truly inclusive environment.

We also jointly lead the Bury Teaching School Alliance which supports training and school improvement across all Bury schools. Our shared vision is to provide the very best learning opportunities and outcomes for all our young people.

In all of our schools we have a commitment to inclusive education and high standards for all. Academic outcomes are important at Hazel Wood High School and we want each young person to fulfil their potential. Creating a sense of pride and community in our school is essential to giving each young person the opportunity to excel.

We also understand the need to develop wider life skills, communication skills and confidence that will contribute to their job prospects and equip our young people to lead happy and successful lives when they leave school.

I hope you enjoy visiting our website and that you find all the information you need. If you would like to visit Hazel Wood High School, you will be warmly welcomed by our staff and pupils.

Message from our Headteacher

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of Hazel Wood High School and to belong to the Oak Learning Partnership. Hazel Wood exists to foster a sense of pride and community and provide opportunity for all to excel.

We have professional and highly motivated staff and, in partnership with our young people, parents and governors, we aim to equip young people for the demands of the 21st century by offering every opportunity to excel. Our school is built on the core values of Pride, Respect and Aspiration. We aim to ensure that we create a stimulating and disciplined environment, and to recognise that successful education lies in supporting the welfare of the whole child: their safety, health and happiness. By helping our students to develop an understanding of our changing world we will encourage them to become positive contributors to society.

Offering opportunities to excel, we aim to provide all our students with an education that equips them with the skills to achieve their full potential at school and in life. The message to our students is clear- we want them to make the difference and ensure they fulfil their ambitions and aspirations with pride and respect.

I hope you find our website both informative and engaging and please do not hesitate to contact us with any issues, we will be happy to assist and support in anyway we can.

Mr P. Greenhalgh
