Welcome to the South Wigston High School Website. Hopefully it will give you a good picture of our school; what we are like and what we do.
Our vision is "success for all". That means we aim to help every student here be the best they can be. Equally, this applies to staff and governors, as by investing in our human resources, we can create better opportunities for our students.
The school is developing rapidly. Granted 11-16 status by the Secretary of State for Education, we are, with great support from parents and students, continually developing our KS4 curriculum and resources. Over the past year we have invested over half a million pounds in building development, classroom resources, training and development. Further developments in all of these areas are planned for this coming academic year.
Our students are indeed successful. Progress and positivity are exceptionally high, behaviour is excellent and our students are very engaged in the wider side of school life, from our clubs to decision making in the school council. Many of our young leaders, are involved in helping us make some of the big decisions and changes we need to be constantly improving.
Our school is now in its seventies and has a long and proud tradition of high achieving students as the ever growing names and photographs in our Hall of Fame shows. Despite being around for a while, our school is in great shape, with excellent modern facilities, from computer rooms to our sports academy.
Parents looking to have their students join us for year 7 in September 2015 should apply through the local authority. We have designed our intake so that there should be enough room for all students who currently attend our three feeder schools; Glen Hills, Fairfield and Parkland Primary Schools. In September 2015 we will begin a year long programme of visits to those schools, beginning with presentations by myself and senior colleagues for parents.
I hope you find our website useful and I hope, if you're a parent, you’ll see we are committed to a partnership that will help everyone linked with the school succeed in life.
In partnership with Glen Hills Primary School, we are now supporting teacher training. Click here for more information.
