Great Baddow High School: a happy, safe and successful 11-18 school of which we are very proud.

Whether you are a prospective parent or considering applying for a job, I hope that you will find the information on this website helpful.  However, I also strongly recommend that you visit us during the working day in order to get a real understanding of our school. We would be delighted to show you around our attractive site so that you can see students and teachers working together in well-equipped, specialist classrooms, using modern technologies and resources.


Our curriculum, enhanced by many enrichment opportunities, clubs, trips and visits, is broad and varied.  We aim to support students in achieving their potential both academically and as well-rounded, confident individuals; we are equally committed to the professional development of our staff.

Many of our students progress into our Sixth Form where they are joined by others from elsewhere.  They make an important contribution to the life of the school, involving themselves in a wide range of activities including World Challenge, and supporting younger students in a variety of ways.  Sixth formers enjoy their own common room, café and study areas.

Great Baddow High School is a ‘Specialist Science and Sports College’ and a centre of excellence.

Both science and PE are part of the core national curriculum although students can opt for more PE at Key Stage 4 and 5.

We deliver a high quality education in science that challenges and stimulates pupils. The sciences are popular A Level subjects with many students choosing science-based courses at university. We promote many vocational and enrichment opportunities, including STEM projects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to enrich learning experiences.

As a specialist sports college since 2004 our sports facilities, teaching expertise and extra-curricular provision are outstanding. Our students enjoy sporting success at district and national level and benefit from an exceptional extra-curricular programme although our ethos is centred on participation for all.

We look forward to welcoming you into our school community.

Please make an appointment to visit by calling 01245 265821.

Yours sincerely,

Carrie Lynch
