Safety Notice

The zebra crossing in Duffield Road has been installed to protect our students and the local community (including younger children walking to and from local primary schools) and we would respectively ask parents dropping off or collecting their children to not park on the zig-zag lines by the crossing.

This is also illegal - even if you stop for just a few minutes to allow passengers to alight from your vehicle.

Parents are also reminded that they should not be driving on to the school site or turning in the drive-way for similar safety reasons.

Great Baddow High School Celebrates GCSE Results

students exceed high expectations

At a time of significant change to GCSEs and to the performance measures, staff and students celebrated excellent GCSE results at Great Baddow High School which exceeded the school’s expected target.  At least 70% of studenets achieved the new benchmark of A*-C in English and maths, with 66% gaining at least 5 A*-C including English and maths, the ‘old measure’ that most people are familiar with.

Both figures show an improvement on last year’s results and build on the established trend of improved results for the school over the last four years, despite the fact that, overall, this particular year group joined the school with lower key stage 2 scores than previous groups. This will be reflected in positive Progress 8 figure, one of the vital new measures introduced this year.

Headteacher, Carrie Lynch, said, ‘We are delighted with the results our students have achieved and the significant progress many of them have made since joining us, which reflects how hard they have worked.  We like to think of ourselves as Team GB and success relies entirely on students and staff working together, with the support and encouragement of their parents. We may not have gold medals to show but we do have black and gold school colours of which we’re very proud!’

Although the focus is very much on individuals on results day, and how these outcomes help students progress into the sixth form or onto further training, the school also encourages students to reflect on the help and support they have received at GBHS over the years. ‘Thank You’ cards are made available for students to pen a brief note to staff and these are very much appreciated by those who receive them. 

‘We believe the care, encouragement and positive relationships enjoyed within the school, along with our high expectations are contributing factors to our students’ success.  Well done to ALL of our students!’  Carrie Lynch, Headteacher.
