    Whether you are a prospective parent, pupil or colleague, we hope our website gives you a flavour of Brigshaw and what we stand for, together with a sense of what an exciting place it is to learn in. Brigshaw is a very successful school and we are rightly proud of our pupils’ achievements and the opportunities we offer.

    At Brigshaw we believe that all children are entitled to success and that there should be no limits to their achievements. We encourage all children to develop ‘Respect for Learning’ through access to high quality learning experiences inside and outside the classroom, based on relationships of trust and respect. Through effective partnerships with other schools and providers we are confident that we can meet the challenges and changes ahead for our children. At the heart of our work is a firm commitment to securing the best possible opportunities for success for every child. We pride ourselves on our high levels of care for individuals, and providing a challenging but supportive learning environment which inspires them to develop themselves as learners and to explore opportunities beyond their immediate surroundings. A strong and effective partnership with parents and carers is key to developing successful learners.

    Pupils come to Brigshaw from a wide variety of primary schools. We work hard with all of these schools to ensure that transition to Brigshaw is smooth, supportive and makes the most of their prior learning. We know how hard they have worked at primary school and know that we must build on what they have learned so they continue to be inspired and challenged. We also work hard to develop ‘extended services’ for young people and the community. Capturing the essence of what makes Brigshaw so successful is difficult in a few lines – visiting us is the best way to really get a feel for Brigshaw. You are always very welcome.
