Baines School is steeped in a rich history thanks to our founder James Baines in 1717. There is a fantastic loyalty to the school with generations of families studying at Baines as well as a number of staff and governors who are also former pupils themselves.
Our catchment serves the areas of Wyre and Fylde, and Blackpool. We have an extremely mixed intake with some pupils from Blackpool which is an area of significant coastal deprivation, with approximately 33% of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our population has a prior attainment above the national average and we have a lot of students who have exceedingly high aspirations, many of whom have gone on to Russell Group Universities
