Prospective Parents

We know that selecting a secondary school is one of the most important decisions you and your child have to make. At Blythe Bridge High School & Sixth Form we are aware that the transition from primary to secondary school can be challenging. Through close liaison with students, parents and our feeder schools, we aim to make that transition as straightforward and comfortable as possible.

On Wednesday 28th September 2016 at 6pm we will hold our open evening for Year 6 parents. The purpose of the evening is for you to understand our ethos, view our excellent facilities and meet our staff and students which we hope will help you to make this important decision for your child’s next steps. The event will commence with short presentations from Mrs Johnson, our Headteacher, and our senior leadership team, followed by a tour of the school. During this time, all the students will be able to participate in activities led by the different curriculum areas and parents will be able to ask any specific questions that they may have, both pastoral and academic.

We are very proud of our school and what our young people achieve. We are a warm and welcoming community of students, staff, parents and governors, who work together to make this a school where individuals are challenged to be the best they can be. High expectations lead to high levels of achievement. Therefore we set high standards for our students to ensure that the school provides a calm and purposeful environment where students can thrive.

We were thrilled that in our recent Ofsted inspection, the school was judged as good in all areas.

“Pupils’ attainment at GCSE is above average and all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs or disability, are now making good progress from their starting points.”

We are also very proud of the work that the school carries out to promote students’ personal development and welfare.
“The behaviour of pupils is good. Behaviour around the school indicates that pupils demonstrate respect, courtesy and good manners. They feel safe and secure in school and know those they can talk to about problems, including peer mentors and teachers, and are confident they will be listened to.”

In addition to our Open Evening, there is an open invitation to all families to come and see the school in action on a normal school day. Please just call the school office to arrange a mutually convenient time.
