Welcome to The Billericay School
Our students are remarkable young people. We want them to have energy and enthusiasm for all that life has to offer; to live as responsible citizens and to succeed academically in our rapidly changing society. We wish to develop their unique talents and aspirations, and give them our support, attention and guidance in every endeavour.
The purpose of The Billericay School is to offer students the opportunity to reach their full potential. We wish to ensure that all children at the school achieve the highest possible standards, whether it be in the classroom, or in the extensive range of opportunities we offer to students at all stages of their education.
The Billericay School is one of the largest schools in Essex with a roll of almost 1700 students, including 300 in the Sixth Form. The school site enjoys an enviable location; close to the town centre, yet situated in spacious grounds, the school is positioned on an elevated site with distant and sweeping views down towards the River Thames and beyond. In times past, a windmill stood nearby, a piece of local history still commemorated in the school badge.
Teaching takes place in four principal blocks.
The original structure, that dates from the school's foundation some sixty years ago includes an open air, furnished and planted quadrangle for lower school students to use during the summer months.
Other buildings include a modern Technology and Business Studies block, an Art, Food Technology and Textiles building and a Sixth Form Centre that provides a modern, attractive environment for our older students.
Other resources include a large assembly hall with television link, a drama studio, a music suite with recording studio, a media area with video editing suite and a large library/ resource based learning centre, which includes extensive ICT and study facilities as well as housing over 30,000 books.
The school's sporting facilities are exceptional, including a swimming pool, sports hall, gymnasium and fitness suite.
Our grounds include tennis and netball courts and football, rugby and cricket pitches. The school has recently achieved the national Sportsmark Award for its sporting excellence and work with the community.
The school also has a medical room, with the services of qualified staff throughout the school day.
It is also worthy of note that many of our staff have chosen to send their own children to the school. What greater sign of confidence could there be!
We understand that your academic success is a team effort, with you, your parents and the school working together and communicating clearly. Our intention is that you always have someone to call upon whenever you need guidance, advice or support and key staff are on hand to help:
Year 13 students collected their A level results in August and they certainly achieved a praise-worthy set of grades.
• 14.6% of all A levels taken were graded A* or A.
• 40.2% were graded A*- B.
• 90% of Year 13 students have succeeded in gaining a place at University of their choice.
Those not moving onto higher education have succeeded in gaining employment or an apprenticeship.
