_DSC0539-2I am delighted to welcome you into our school community. Our aim at Maxwelltown High School is to develop our young people as successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and ultimately, responsible citizens. Through their educational experiences with us, they will also be given the opportunity to develop the skills for learning, work and life which will result in them making the successful transition from school into university, college, training or employment.

At Maxwelltown High School not only are we committed to providing the very best educational experiences and opportunities but also advice and support as appropriate and when needed. As well as our staff being highly effective classroom teachers, they are compassionate and caring individuals who are always willing to help our youngsters in any way they can.

Parents, outside agencies and visitors are often in the school and they comment on the welcoming and friendly atmosphere in our school and the excellent relationships between our pupils and our staff. We work hard at maintaining a positive ethos and providing a caring, safe and productive environment for staff and pupils.

The best education for young people comes from an active three way partnership between school, young people and parents and carers. The Senior Leadership Team and Principal Teachers of Pupil Support are always happy to meet with parents and carers to discuss aspects of their child’s schooling. Their views and suggestions are always welcome and valued.

In our quest to provide the most effective and successful education, we also work in partnership with our associated primary schools, members of the local community, our local business partners, other partners in learning and most importantly, our young people.

We will ensure the young people who attend Maxwelltown High School have a successful, engaging and enjoyable secondary education.

Ms R Williams Acting Headteacher
