What the school offers its staff

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 was 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 strong as we move to ensure that we engage, train and retain the best teachers for our students.

Pupils, including students in the sixth form, are proud to attend the school. They feel safe and cared for. Pupils feel they can speak to any member of staff if they have concerns or worries.

Positive relationships are a cornerstone of the school and allow pupils to express themselves with confidence.

Pupils believe the school takes their well-being seriously. One pupil told an inspector, ‘Everyone cares at Brighouse.’ The atmosphere around school and in lessons is calm. Pupils behave well and engage positively in lessons. Pupils are polite and respectful towards each other and staff.

Ofsted 2022

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.

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’.
