David Bailey, Principal
Our school is a successful, vibrant and wonderfully diverse community comprehensive that is committed to high standards in all areas, first class teaching and ensuring that students leave us with many happy memories. It is our job to work with our parents and young people to ensure that they get to where they want to be in life and realise their potential.
As a school we aim to nurture the passions and ambition in all students, of all abilities, in all disciplines through a challenging, supportive and inspiring environment. Opportunities for enrichment within and beyond the curriculum are plentiful and we are committed to providing a wide range of inspirational activities for all our students.
In short, Biddenham is a school that values individuals, transforms lives and where ‘success for all’ is not just a mantra, but infuses all we do.
Eleanor Grylls, Head of School
We believe in the power of education to transform lives for the better and create leaders of the future. We want our young people to be inspired to love learning and develop as a whole person and Biddenham is an exciting environment where this aspiration becomes a reality.
Learning in the 21st Century needs to equip young people with skills as well as knowledge to prepare them for the challenges of a global society. Biddenham does this and much more. We are also about building strength of character within a secure and embracing family ethos that celebrates diversity in all its richness, underpinned by a culture of sporting and performance excellence.
At Biddenham we cultivate and value positive relationships between staff and students, between students themselves and amongst the staff team. We pride ourselves on knowing students; knowing the young people behind the numbers. Students at Biddenham have every opportunity to develop their unique talents and therefore have every opportunity to succeed.
