Runcorn’s Philosophy

Runcorn State High School has a proud culture of personalised learning, where the individual counts. This allows for the tailored response to the needs of students as individuals to ensure each student experiences level appropriate success in their education. Our goal is to cater for the full range of learners, in order to achieve meaningful post-school pathways.

Improving student literacy remains a high priority and we seek to address the specific challenges faced by students through a broad curriculum enabling flexible and needs-based grouping where all students are encouraged to strive for excellence.

Runcorn State High School is strongly focused upon improving student learning.

All of our teaching staff (Teachers, Heads of Department, Head of Special Education Services, Deputy Principals and Principal) encourage educational achievement by making quality teaching and learning the top priority for our school. This is achieved primarily through the pedagogical framework of The Art and Science of Teaching by Robert Marzano.
