Blacon High School continues to raise standards and promote success for its students. We aim to be the first choice for parents when choosing a secondary school by providing students with a very high standard of education, in a safe and caring environment. I am delighted that our vision for creating a culture of aspiration and success is being realised.
Last year (Summer 2013) the school enjoyed its ‘best ever’ outcomes with 83% of all students gaining 5A*-C grades, with 49% of students achieving this including English and Maths. The majority of our students exceeded their target of three levels of progress and achieved outcomes which have allowed them to secure a place on a post 16 course. Teaching and Learning here is inspirational and the care and guidance and support that we can offer our students is of the highest quality. I am very proud of the achievements of our students here at Blacon High School. The fantastic outcomes, now a four year trend of improvements, are as a consequence of high ambition and expectation in the school.
Great things are happening at Blacon High School and the future is very exciting with a brand new building on the horizon. By the summer of 2017, the new school building will be complete with specialist science laboratories, art and design areas, state of the art ICT provision and large, open plan learning areas.
This exciting development is as a consequence of Blacon High School being selected for the Priority Schools Building Programme, a government backed plan to develop and improve selected schools (261 nationally) to achieve 21st century inspiring buildings and learning environments. The ‘new’ building will take Blacon High School into a new and exciting future and it comes following significant achievements by the school and its students. The future is very bright for this school and the Blacon community.
Our open door policy to parents and carers visiting the school to see the exciting things that are happening demonstrates our confidence. Blacon High School is a school which is exceeding all expectations, where we work hard to ensure that every one of our students will not just achieve, but excel.
