Welcome to Brighouse High School 2018-19


A welcome to the new academic year from the Headteachers of Brighouse High School


Welcome to the 2018-19 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.  At the start of the year we would like to congratulate our Year 13 and Year 11 students who achieved some excellent GCSE, A Level and Btec qualifications over the Summer. The hard work and commitment paid off for the majority of students and we had many  students with reasons to celebrate on results days. At A level this year we achieved some very pleasing results in our ‘open’ sixth form community. All A level students secured a place at university, employment or an apprenticeship. We wish them all the very best for the future.  At Key Stage 4 almost 70% of pupils achieved the benchmark combined English and Mathematics qualifications. In a turbulent year for GCSE results we were pleased that high standards were upheld and feel satisfied that the vast majority of students have a firm foundation on which to build future success.

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 preparing for exams 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.

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