Welcome to Brighouse High School 2014/2015


Dear pupils, parents and visitors to the website

Welcome to the 2014-15 academic year at Brighouse High School. You will see from the website that our school is a busy and vibrant learning community where pupils and staff are afforded a range of experiences.  As always we begin the year by saying congratulations to all our Year 13 and Year 11 students who achieved GCSE, A Level and Btec qualifications over the Summer. The hard work and commitment has paid off and we had many happy faces on results day in August. We broke records this year in terms of A Level pass rates and were especially proud of the number of students achieving A’s & Distinctions across the school. At Key Stage 4 74% of pupils achieved 5 A* – C’s including English and Mathematics equalling our best ever results. We wish all of our students the best of luck for the next stage of their academic journey and in particular wish the 130 students who are embarking on a university course every success as undergraduates.

Our website is designed to give an insight into life at Brighouse High and to provide information for current and prospective pupils and their parents. You will see from the website that in our school, lessons and learning in the classroom are very important. We want all of our pupils to value their learning experience and to strive to do their best. The school is much more than just lessons however, and the photographs and articles on the website give an insight into some of the challenges, trips, visits and activities that our pupils, students and staff get involved in.

I hope that you enjoy visiting the website and find it informative.
