Principal's Welcome

The Principal

Welcome to The County High School, Leftwich, a school with an established reputation for enabling our students to maximise their potential academically and socially. We strive to nurture an appropriately challenging, but caring and supportive atmosphere in which each student is encouraged to make the right choice, to develop self-discipline, self-confidence and self-reliance, essential attributes of a personalised approach to learning and crucial qualities in preparation for independent, adult life beyond the safe environment we provide.

We are committed to the continuous development of a learning community which encourages each individual to recognise his/her talents and to learn how to learn in order to secure purposeful and satisfying future employment in a rapidly changing, global marketplace. Thus, we encourage our students to participate in the many exciting and varied activities that flourish beyond as well as in the classroom. The School enjoys an enviable reputation for Art, Photography, Music, Dance and Sport. Expertise is also offered in a range of other areas, including visits at home and abroad. We believe "Every Child Matters", that education is about enjoyment and achievement which, together, can bring your child the success s/he craves and you desire.
