Southlands High School, Chorley
By Neil Davies, Deputy Headteacher
Why did they select SchooliP?
"As Deputy Headteacher at a school looking to transform our
standards and to improve the outcomes for our students I was
immediately attracted to SchooliP. The easy way it works to tie
together our SEF, School Development Plan and Performance Management
really appealed to me"
What in particular attracted them to the product?
"When the software was presented to the Headteacher, Mark Fowle,
he was impressed with the ease of use for staff and the opportunity
to take a view across all these important school documents in one
place. Furthermore the support offered by SchooliP was impressive,
including automated email for staff around deadlines to remind them
when a task needs completion"
Would they recommend SchooliP to other schools?
"We would have no hesitation in recommending SchooliP it is an
easily coordinated distributed management system for some of the
most important areas around school improvement and development"
is very proud of to be awarded a specialist status back in 1998.
Technology College status does not mean they are a
technical college, or that they only do technological subjects.
Pupils at Southlands follow a broad and balanced curriculum, but
they do have a technological ethos throughout the school.
They also run many special projects within the subjects of
Design and Technology, Mathematics, Science and ICT. Many of
these projects provide our pupils with additional opportunities
to excel in these subjects, both within and beyond the normal
Part of our responsibility as a Specialist School includes
working with our partner schools, community groups and local
businesses. In addition to the community benefits provided,
Southlands’ pupils benefit either directly or indirectly from
these events. For instance nearly all of our current pupils had
their first introduction to Southlands whilst still at their
Primary School, visiting our ICT suites as part of their KS2 to
KS3 transition programme.
