What the school offers its staff

Hawkley Hall is a high performing, heavily oversubscribed, mixed

comprehensive school of around 1160 students.

In June 2017, Hawkley Hall High School was awarded Teaching

School status and in April 2018 became the lead school of the

Greater Manchester Science Learning Partnership, part of the DfE

funded national network, STEM Learning.

We see successful education as a partnership between parents,

students and ourselves. Links with parents are of paramount

importance, with regular and frequent contact via parents’ evenings,

reports, newsletters and the school planner contributing to a

continuing dialogue about the education we provide for our children.

The school is situated in the south western part of Wigan, close to

the M6 motorway, in an area of substantial private development. A

wild fowl nature reserve borders the school grounds providing an

open attractive outlook to the site.

The Rowan Learning Trust (RLT) was established as a Multi-Academy

Trust in 2012 to maximise potential of all children, students and adults

in our schools and to support them in their journey to become


Currently the RLT family comprises six schools: three high schools, an

all-through alternative provision academy and two primary schools.

Together we share a set of common values:

• Mutual respect

• Fairness

• Equality of opportunity

• Individual growth

• Kindness

We believe in an inclusive workplace – one that is built on fairness,

merit and respect to help our employees perform to their greatest
