A warm welcome to Poynton High School.


Thank you for your interest in our school.  Poynton High School is a very special place with a long established record of providing a first class, inspiring and challenging education for all our students.  We are a large (approximately 1400 students) 11 – 18 school serving the communities of Poynton, Disley, Adlington, Pott Shrigley and further afield out towards Macclesfield, Stockport and Derbyshire.


With a long established reputation for academic excellence we are consistently one of the highest achieving schools in the North West of England.  We strive to deliver the best results with our enthusiastic and talented team of staff who see it as their job to help every one of our students to achieve their individual potential.  Through a wide and engaging curriculum, including Welfare Education, Drama, Music, Dance, PE and community programmes, we also develop our students’ wider personal skills and help to equip them for a successful future in our changing world. 


We are proud of the high academic standards our students achieve, but equally proud of the way in which they grow up to be responsible, hardworking and healthy adults who contribute fully to their community.  I hope our website gives you a taste of our vibrant and successful learning community.  Please do not hesitate to contact us in school if you need more information or perhaps consider following us on twitter through @PHS_Headteacher and @PoyntonHigh.
