Falinge Park High School is a large, over-subscribed, multicultural, inclusive comprehensive in Rochdale. There is a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the school and a positive ethos amongst the staff. We have created a culture which supports each other at every level rather than a tick-box approach to success.

Our core purpose is to secure the best academic and personal outcomes for all pupils and instil a life-long love of learning. This will ensure that all learners believe in themselves and their future, have choices and the power to make them and are able to contribute positively to society.

Empowering all to: ASPIRE, THRIVE, AND ACHIEVE

The Governors of Falinge Park High School have determined that the school should join the Watergrove Trust, a Rochdale-based multi-academy trust which aligns very positively with the Falinge Park values and mission. We hope to join the Watergrove community of two secondary and five primary schools in the Autumn term of 2024.

Watergrove is a part centralised trust which shares core processes but also honours the individual character of all its schools, so whilst benefiting from the collaborative opportunities of being in a trust, you will also be firmly part of the Falinge Park family
