Poynton High School Open Evening.
21st April 1926 to 8th September 2022
Sixth Form Results 2022
We are really pleased to be part of the Education Endowment Foundation’s Switch-On Reading Project. Our lead LSAs are in the final stages of training and gearing up to start the intervention with our younger students. This looks to be an exciting project and a great opportunity to be involved in an evidence-based national strategy to support learners to become more fluent readers. This work forms part of our wider reading strategy in school and we look forward to seeing the results.
Poynton High School has joined the Queen's Green Canopy (QGC) mission. The tree pictured is a new apple tree which was planted at the school earlier this year. In October 2022, along with thousands of other schools, we look forward to officially marking our contribution by uploading a progress photo to the QGC Map for which the school will receive a commemorative plaque.
The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.
Poynton High School has received a participation award for those students who collectively participated and volunteered in this year's Duke of Edinburgh programme. Huge congratulations to all PHS students involved who spent a combined total of 2067 hours volunteering in the community. We can't agree more with the charity that say they are 'immensely proud of the dedication, effort and achievement of young people making an impact'. Well done!
It has been a difficult time for everyone over the last couple of years, no less so than for our young people. Working together, the Middlewood Partnership, through members of its Poynton-based Patient Participation Forum groups, Poynton High School and Poynton Town Council have been developing resources to help young people in our area as part of Mental Health Awareness Week. Members of Poynton High School’s Student Leadership Team have identified areas of concern and the support services and organisations which can help young people. Students suggested that a ‘business-style’ card with information would be very useful. Funding has been secured from Waitrose and Timpson Foundation to print ‘Wellbeing cards’ with Poynton Town Council designing the cards. Every student at Poynton High School has been given a card to keep, and some will be available at Waitrose and the Timpson shop in Cheadle.
Middlewood Partnership have also consulted with the students to develop easily-navigated, specific webpages on their website aimed at meeting the needs of young people. The pages have lots of useful information about self-help including alcohol and drug misuse, mental health, smoking, relationships and lots more.

Mr Dean, Headteacher, said ‘This is a really positive example of what can be achieved through partnership between our school and the wider community. I am sure it will be of real benefit to young people in Poynton’.
Poynton High School has become an official Research Partner in the Education for Wellbeing programme.
We are working in partnership with the Evidence Based Practice Unit (Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and UCL), which has been commissioned by the Department for Education. Together we are investigating the impact of five innovative approaches that aim to promote pupil wellbeing.
This cutting-edge research trial is the largest of its kind in the UK. Our school's contribution will improve understanding of how best to support children and young people's mental health and wellbeing.
