Blenheim is a dynamic, exciting and
supportive environment in which to work. The school opened in September 1997
with one year group and has grown to its current size of 1337 students on roll
including over 200 in the Sixth Form.
Blenheim is a mixed comprehensive and our reputation in the community is
In 2019, Blenheim was characterised as a
‘good’ school following a Section 5 Ofsted inspection. Ofsted commented that
the school had excellent capacity to continue improving.
Blenheim converted to Academy Status in March
2012 and has developed many community and primary school links. Blenheim is a
well–resourced school and is fortunate to have outstanding facilities. Together
with a very supportive and well qualified governing body the school has
invested significantly in several areas, not least in the appointment of
high-quality practitioners and on-site infrastructure. Visitors often comment
on the calm, purposeful learning environment that pervades.
Blenheim sets high standards in terms of
uniform with several ‘non-negotiables’ and there are strict expectations
regarding behaviour and conduct, both in and out of the classroom. Ofsted
described Blenheim as ‘calm, orderly and purposeful’ and our students as
‘respectful, kind and courteous’, which is what those of us who work at
Blenheim see every day.
As Blenheim students prepare to take up their
place in society they are actively encouraged to become independent learners.
Part of this process involves the integration of iPads across the curriculum; all
teachers and 98% of students own one. Technological evolution is inevitable and
this approach is key to ensuring that students develop attributes that will
allow them to adapt in a rapidly changing world. The iPad complements daily
teaching and allows students to easily access a multitude of interactive and
innovative resources both in and away fromschool.
Blenheim High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
