Welcome to Brighouse High School 2019-2020


A warm welcome to the new academic year, 2019-20, and to Brighouse High School. 

Once again the outgoing Year 11 and Year 13 students have achieved richly deserved exam results which have enabled them to move on to their next exciting challenges whether that be in college, university or employment and the school continued to strengthen the qualification outcomes in many key areas. In our vibrant and successful sixth form college there were some outstanding results in academic and vocational qualifications with all of our post-16 students securing their places in higher education, employment or training with Oxbridge places for two of our students. In key stage 4 we were delighted to see that just over 70% of our students achieved the important benchmark qualifications in English and Maths, the vital springboard into their next stages.

I am sure you will find though, through this website and visiting our school, that we are about so much more than just qualifications, important as they are. From the moment our Year 7 students step foot across the threshold our students are challenged to aspire and achieve within a warm, caring and supportive environment where we aim to take small steps every day to becoming better at what we do well and work hard to improve those areas in which we feel the need to develop further. The opportunities within and beyond the traditional curriculum are rich and diverse at Brighouse High School and we encourage all of our students to become part of our community and build on the sense of togetherness which is so important to us and importantly recognised by those who visit us.

Our successes are built on a strong partnership between our students, staff and the community and this is the cornerstone on which our future successes will continue to be built. Strong classroom practice within an appropriate and personalised curriculum, positive ethos and behaviour, a sense of place in the community and society as a whole and support from home will be the key to successful outcomes for all.

So, welcome once again and we look forward to taking those small steps every day, together, in the challenge of another year.
