Headteacher’s Welcome

“Students talk about the very strong and tight-knit school community they are part of and the excellent support they receive from their teachers…” Ofsted, 2017.

Thank you for visiting Biddulph High School’s website. I hope that along with our prospectus it will give you a clear sense of what makes our school distinctive.

Parents, students, staff and Trustees believe that we have an exceptional school with an excellent record of developing the individual talents of our students. As a school, we are both ambitious and innovative; we set very high standards, encouraging all our students to maximise their potential both academically and through an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities. We have a community that is both thoughtful and harmonious. In February 2017 Ofsted graded the school as ‘Good’.

Education at Biddulph High School is founded on ‘traditional’ themes: ambition, individuality, purpose and growth. There is also plenty of hard work, determination, cooperation, fairness, trust, honesty, kindness and generosity.

Visitors to our school say that our students are a credit to themselves, their families and their school. Our corridors and classrooms are calm yet purposeful. We always look towards the future and students are given every opportunity to gain the qualifications and personal skills that an ever changing world of employment requires.

With this in mind, we continue to develop extensive links with a wide range of universities as well as local and global leaders in the world of industry. Our Associate membership of the Potteries Education Trust will further enhance the education that we provide for our students.

In 2017, over 58% of our students gained English and Mathematics GCSEs at grades 9-4, whilst nearly 50% of our Sixth Form (BH6) students achieved A* – B grades in their Level 3 courses including A-Levels and BTECs.

As a regional hub for Initial Teacher Training and Leadership Development we aim to further develop education and professional learning across the area. We continue to work closely with our feeder schools to provide all of the students and staff in Biddulph with the best opportunities to develop and grow.

We continually invest in the school site to provide our students with a pleasant and contemporary learning environment.

Check the school Website, Newsletters and Twitter feeds @BiddulphHigh and @Bh6Form, for the latest information about the everyday life of the school. If you require further information or you wish to visit us during a school day, please do not hesitate to contact us.
