Parents/carers must ensure that students arrive to school in the correct school uniform. Uniform is checked during our daily meet and greet at the front of the school. Parents/carers can purchase additional uniform via ParentPay. Students can purchase uniform at Student Services using their ParentPay balance.
Brigshaw is a popular choice for parents/carers and pupils reflecting the confidence they have in Brigshaw. Pupils come to us from Allerton Bywater, Kippax, Great Preston, Little Preston, Swillington, Micklefield, Methley, Garforth and the outer Leeds suburbs. We have around 1400 pupils on roll, including 200 in our Sixth Form.
We are a very successful school and we are rightly proud of our pupils’ achievements and the opportunities we offer. We all commit to providing a cradle to career curriculum that gives students lives of choice and opportunity.
If you have any questions, or would like to speak to a member of staff about joining Brigshaw High School, please contact email@example.com.
We work closely with our primary schools to make sure that the transition to Brigshaw High School is as smooth as possible. The benefits of our comprehensive transition process are:
We visit every child in May of Year 6 to start to build relationships. During the summer term our Festival of Transition gives primary schools which form part of the Brigshaw Learning Partnership (BLP) the opportunity to learn at Brigshaw with their Year 6 teacher and also to be taught by our staff. Pupils joining Brigshaw from outside of the BLP are also invited to attend the Festival of Transition to support their move to High School. If students need additional support in making this transition, we have teams of support staff to help. We encourage regular communication with teaching staff and parents/carers to ensure that the move to high school is a positive experience.
Once at Brigshaw, the year 7 curriculum aims to help bridge the gap from primary to secondary school, building on the excellent work at Key Stage 2 and making the most of specialist staff.
