Headteacher’s Welcome



I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Cansfield High School. Cansfield is an inclusive 11 to 16 secondary school and every member of our team does their upmost to provide a high standard of education, care and support to the students who form the bedrock of our community.

At Cansfield we have high aspirations for all of our students in every aspect of their lives. Our students wear their uniform with pride, they are punctual and rarely miss school and they apply themselves with dedication and commitment in all of their lessons. They are also encouraged to develop skills outside of the classroom and we value and celebrate success in every area of their lives, including sports, music and extracurricular clubs. Our students have positive relationships with staff members and develop strong friendships with other students. The signature of our school is undoubtedly the fact that every student is known as an individual by staff – our students really matter to us and they always have people to go to if there is an issue or if they want to celebrate an achievement. The sense of belonging that every student has at Cansfield High School ensures that we get the best out of students and provide them with a foundation that will ensure that they are happy and equipped to enjoy success in their lives.

I hope that the information contained in these pages will give you a sense of what our school is all about and the many opportunities that we provide. If further information is required, please do not hesitate to contact me via email (n.daniels@cansfield.wigan.sch.uk) or by ringing the school and booking an appointment to see me.

Best wishes,

Mrs Nici Daniels
