New Starters 2021
A warm welcome to Colne Park High School where you and your child are about to embark on the next exciting stage of their academic and personal development journey.
Park High is a vibrant and academically successful school offering an extensive and balanced curriculum and a rich and diverse programme of extra-curricular activities, all supported by an exceptional pastoral system. Here at Park we place students' needs at the very core of everything we do. We all want the absolute best for our young people who need to be empowered to shine, grow and develop into the best they can possibly be.
Introducing Mrs Amanda Coward - Transition Lead
"September will mark the start of my 13th year at Park High School (time flies!) having joined the Park family in 2008. It is an absolute pleasure to have been part of our wonderful and well-known Pastoral Team. During my time I have been Head of Year 7 for several years before the move into the vertical house system. My role has now evolved into leading our established student wellbeing team and Safeguarding. In addition, I remained involved in Year 6 to 7 Transition throughout this time and bring a wealth of experience. I love the role and am more than happy to be 'School Mum' to 200+ new students (a nickname affectionately given to me that has now stuck!)
Working with Year 7, I recognise our family extends beyond the school walls and encompasses the Park community. We continue to build and maintain excellent relationships with parents and carers, relationships which undoubtedly contribute to our children's success at school. We value and act on all feedback we receive from the Park community and constantly strive to provide the best care and education possible for our student; transition included.
This year I will be leading Transition and will be the primary contact and liaison for parents and primary schools throughout this phase. A job I love!
I look forward to visiting primary schools in the upcoming months, seeing lots of smiling faces and to collect as much knowledge as I can about your child to share with the team at Park. There are also plans to visit with a pupil roadshow (COVID dependant).
I always look forward to this time of year and getting to know you and your families and cannot wait until we can open the doors and meet in person. Until then please do not hesitate to get in touch with school on firstname.lastname@example.org ".
