Welcome to Burnley High School.


Welcome to Burnley High School, a secondary school based in West Burnley. We opened in 2014 with year 7 and we will continue to build on that each year until we open our 6th Form in 2019. We offer a very different school with a strong ethos and high academic expectation. Our curriculum is both creative and innovative and we are dedicated to equipping our students for the working world in which they will enter.

Our school ethos ensures that all our students and staff are part of a family and we instil a strong sense of community and social responsibility.

Alongside our innovative and engaging curriculum we have a team of dedicated students, our Pastoral Coaches, for those who feel they might benefit from a little extra support. Alongside the student coaches we also have adult coaches who will work with our students in their primary school before they join our family at Burnley High School.

Burnley High School is committed to providing our students with an outstanding education together with a strong sense of Christian values. Equipping them to be successful, considerate and caring members of society.

Please take a look through our website to find out more about the opportunities at BHS. We look forward to welcoming you to our school community.
