The two schools in Haslingden that preceded the school were Haslingden Grammar School on Bury Road, which was knocked down in 1997 and turned into an housing development, and Haslingden County Secondary School on Ryefield Avenue.
In the most recent OfSTED Inspection, the main school was awarded Good in all criteria. The Sixth Form was also graded as 'Outstanding' for Care, Advice and Guidance. Exam results have risen for the last five years, with increasing results in ICT, English Literature, Religious Studies and BTEC Sport.
GCSE results are often above the England average. It is one of the few Lancashire comprehensives with a sixth form.
The school is led by headteacher Mark Jackson. It runs a Faculty system, each headed by a curriculum leader. The pastoral system at Haslingden High School includes Heads of Lower, Middle and Upper schools leading learning mentors in each year group.
The Sixth Form is led by Mr. Simon Heaton, Director of Sixth Form Studies. The Sixth Form at Haslingden is part of the main school and many of the high school students go on to complete Post-16 study at Haslingden's sixth form. Students have also joined from other local schools such as Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School, All Saints Catholic Language College in Rawtenstall, Fearns Community Sports College in Bacup and Alder Grange Community and Technology School in Rawtenstall.
