On 8th September 1965 Great Baddow High School – or Baddow Comprehensive as it was known back then - opened its doors for the first time, with 16 staff and 227 children joining ‘the First Year.’

Today students and staff at the 1400-strong school celebrated with birthday cake and cookies, launching what will be a year of activities and events commemorating this important date in the school’s history.

Students at Great Baddow High School have equalled the ‘best ever’ results under the new criteria - with 70% achieving 5 or more A*-C and 65% achieving 5 or more A*-C including English and maths. 

Great Baddow High School is delighted with overall figures and outstanding results in a number of A Level subjects including English, maths and the sciences; for example, 87% A*-B in English Literature.

After much campaigning by Chris Persey, Sports College Coordinator at GBHS, the first multi-sport Panathlon Challenge was hosted at Great Baddow High School, with sports tailored specifically to students with hearing impairments.

Students from Great Baddow High School supported the first Panathlon Regional Swimming at the London Aquatic Centre as Aquatic Leaders.
