Sale High School is an innovative learning community.

Our aim is to provide the very best educational opportunities enabling each student to develop their talents, grow in confidence and self-esteem and fulfil their potential.

This can be done most effectively when staff, parents and children understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, as detailed in our Home School Agreement.
