It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you and your child to Henley Bank High School. We are delighted that you will be joining us on our journey in September 2023 and we cannot wait to meet you in person as you start your exciting secondary school journey with us.
As a school, we are aware of just how important a decision choosing a secondary school is and we are made up that you have chosen to become part of the Henley Bank family. We stand by our mission statement of students having “a better chance of success” by attending our school and we cannot wait to see, and be part of the journey that your child is about to take. High expectations, excellent behaviour, brilliant teaching and opportunities to develop interests, hobbies and character are all crucial aspects to our school that we hold dear, and by you choosing to join us, you are saying that you are keen for this to be something that you are a part of. The saying “we are all on the same mountain, just a different journey to the top” is something that we are passionate about in acknowledging that everyone’s ‘journey’ is different and that is brilliant, but we should be respectful and help each other to reach our goals and achieve the best that we possibly can.
We will be hosting several evenings where you will get the chance to meet myself, plus key members of staff prior to your child joining us.
I look forward to meeting you and your child in the very near future.
Mr S Derry
