Parents' Questionnaire comments, Autumn 2022.


At Balshaw Lane, we have always aimed to offer a vibrant, progressive curriculum in a happy environment.

Whilst we aim for high academic standards, test results are not our sole purpose.

We want our pupils to leave school feeling confident, with a strong desire for life-long learning.
