Welcome and congratulations to everyone who has been offered a place at Darwen Vale from September. We look forward to working with you.There are still some places available so please get in touch if you want to discuss your options.
Thank you for showing an interest in our school. I am delighted to welcome you to our website which can only be an introduction to the ethos, atmosphere and aspiration of Darwen Vale High School.
Darwen Vale High School is a good school. We know that a good education has a transformational effect on the lives of young people now and in the future so we are committed to providing high quality teaching and learning on a daily basis coupled with strong and effective support systems. Our school is a place where every child is recognised as an individual, where their voices are encouraged to be heard and their ideas developed.
We believe that education should be a challenging but enjoyable experience. We work hard to instil in all our pupils the desire to do their very best because this is crucial to achieving success. We support pupils to gain the appropriate qualifications and skills they need for a lifetime of success and provide a wealth of additional learning opportunities via an impressive range of extra-curricular opportunities.
Visitors frequently comment on the purposeful and friendly working atmosphere within our school. We believe that this arises partly out of the commitment and approachable style of our highly qualified staff and partly out of the firm but fair discipline we maintain.
Our aims and values
“Unlocking potential for extraordinary achievement”
“Together we achieve our own personal excellence.”
If you decide to entrust us with your child’s education, I am confident that your child will experience a first class education. The staff and I look forward to working with you to help your child to achieve their own personal excellence.
Mrs Fiona Jack
