About Us

We are an 11-18 community comprehensive school which serves Boroughbridge and the surrounding area. With just under 600 students we are a relatively small school which gives us a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere.

We feel like a family and, as such, we know our students well making Boroughbridge High School a good place to work and learn.  Our belief in ‘Aspiration and Support for all’ means that our students are at the heart of our decision making. We strive to ensure that all students leave our school, not only with the qualifications they need to access the next stage of their education or career of choice, but with the skills and confidence to make an active contribution to the communities to which they belong.

To secure this, our curriculum is constantly evolving as we respond to the changing needs of our students. We introduced a Stage not Age curriculum for GCSE option subjects last year and have built on our commitment to developing students’ leadership skills by introducing the Young Leaders Award in this academic year. This will complement existing opportunities such as our School Council and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

We actively seek opportunities to improve our practice and benefit from partnership working. We collaborate with two other local schools at post-16 and are members of the Yorkshire Teaching School Alliance and the White Rose Alliance.
