Fairfield High School


      Important Notice

      Dear Parents/Carers

      Re : Leadership Change
      As most of you will be aware our Headteacher (Mr. Hesketh) will be leaving Fairfield at the end of this term (Friday 5th April 2019) in order to take up a new Headship role at another Secondary School. 

      Under his leadership the school has improved in many ways; academic standards have risen, the quality of teaching has improved, our GCSE examination results have been outstanding, the school’s facilities have developed and the range of opportunities for pupils has significantly grown. 

      The Governing Body is extremely appreciative of the individual positive contribution that Mr. Hesketh has made to the school in ensuring that the school’s excellent reputation and high standards have been maintained during his period as Headteacher and they would like to thank him for everything he has done for the school during his time here and to wish him every success at his new school.

      Mr. Hesketh’s pending departure has meant that the Senior Leadership Team has had to be restructured from after the Easter holidays.

      You will recall from a letter that I sent home to all parents/carers last term; from Tuesday 23rd April 2019 our Deputy Headteacher (Mrs. Bateman) will assume the role of Headteacher; many of you will have either met or spoken to Mrs. Bateman and will know that she is fully accustomed with the leadership of the school.  In her role of Headteacher Mrs. Bateman will be supported by the Deputy Headteacher (Miss Lealman) and four Assistant Headteachers (Dr. Beckett, Miss Mawdsley, Mrs. McCormick and Mr. Di Paola).

      Whilst the school is about to undergo a change of Leadership, I would like to reassure you that the Governing Body (working in conjunction with Mrs. Bateman and her Senior Leadership Team) will ensure that there will be a smooth transition for everyone (parents/carers and pupils).  One thing that is absolutely certain is that everyone connected with the school is committed to providing a ‘first class’ education for all of its pupils and in ensuring that Fairfield High School continues to go from strength to strength.

      Thank you for your continued support.

      Best Wishes.

      Roger Lingard
      Chair of Governors

      Head Girl

      My name is Madeleine Frost and I am very proud to be able to say that I am Head Girl at Fairfield High School for Girls.  From my very first year at Fairfield, I undertook many roles and responsibilities and these have helped me to achieve this privilege.  I have always put a lot of time and effort into the school and I know this has helped me to succeed.  However, I would not have been able to do this without the support of the outstanding staff at this school and I would like to thank them all for their help.  Along with our amazing Head Girl Team, I am looking forward to supporting other girls during this year.
