About Brighouse High School

Thank you for your interest in joining Brighouse High School; we are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our school.

Brighouse High School was one of the initial converter academies in 2006 and is the founding member of the Valley Learning Partnership.

Our school is oversubscribed and has consistently served the community of Brighouse and the surrounding area, always developing and building on consistent good practice and ensuring that positive experiences of student and staff development are partnered with good outcomes for the students. Our School Direct Programme is also growing rapidly as we move to ensure that we engage, train and retain the best teachers for our students.

‘It is clear that you are uncompromising in your standards and work to ensure that you meet the needs of individual pupils. Teachers told us that there is a strong sense of ‘togetherness’ across the school. Pupils told us that they feel part of a caring school community that is fully inclusive with a trusting ethos. Pupils feel valued as learners. They say that they feel safe in school and trust staff to support them with their learning and well-being.’ – Ofsted 2017

Our commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum has never faltered; we have always ensured that students are offered the broadest range of opportunities to succeed in an inclusive and supportive environment. We are consistently amongst the highest achieving secondary schools in Calderdale for enabling our students to progress with the benchmark qualifications required to access their next steps in education, employment or training.

Our ethos is simple; we value and are proud to be a comprehensive school which serves all of our local community. The core purpose of our school is to raise achievement for all and to do this within a framework of positive behaviour and relationships. We consistently strive to ensure that Brighouse High School is a happy place to learn and work and that there is equality of opportunities for all. We put the welfare and achievement of our pupils at the core of all our decisions.

Our vision remains clear; we aim to provide for our students an education and support that is second to none. We encourage each individual, student and staff member to contribute positively to school life; the best thing about Brighouse High School is the people in it. 

Our sense of togetherness is important to us and to our community and it is often quoted that ‘the best thing about Brighouse High is the people in it’.
