Fantastic Fundraising

Students recently took part in a week of fundraising events and raised a fantastic £688.19 for the Foundation charity. Every student in the school raised money either through their own form events and/or the whole school dress down day on Friday 13th February 2015 by donating £1 to 'Wear Something Pink'




 Sponge the Teacher!

Always a favourite, students donated to the Foundation charity for the opportunity to sponge Mr Roper, Mr West and Mrs Pirie...and what better way to empty the buckets afterwards!


 All Tied Up for Charity!

Year 9 students Amelia Simpson and Jessica Heselwood spent the day tied together to raise money for the Foundation charity


 Art Competition Winners

Headteacher's Message

 Welcome to our website. I hope you find the information within the website informative and stimulating.

We live our motto at Brayton High School – we strive for everyone to "be the best they can be" in all they do. We are committed to high standards in behaviour, uniform and the quality of Teaching and Learning. Students learn in a safe and secure environment – they are happy and want to achieve the best they can.

Our school values are the thread that bind all our school community together.

1. Aim high and work hard to achieve your full potential

At Brayton High School we have very high expectations of achievement for all our students. Each student is set challenging targets for every subject – they are assessed every 6 weeks to check on progress. If any student is underachieving, we intervene to get them back on track.

2. Respect yourself, each other and the environment

At Brayton High School we have very high expectations of behaviour and uniform. Behaviour at Brayton High School is good and standards of uniform are very high. We have a clear, fair and simple rewards/sanctions procedure. Students are rewarded for good behaviour and work – they collect 'stamps' in their daily planners and are awarded positive achievement certificates at our regular achievement assemblies. Students who make the wrong choices receive consequences such as after-school detentions, isolation during the day and, where necessary, exclusion.

3. Engage in the best quality Teaching and Learning

Good achievement only comes from good quality Teaching and Learning. At Brayton High School we have high expectations of our teachers and teaching assistants and we encourage all our students to actively participate in lessons by working hard, answering questions and responding to the constructive feedback given by teachers. We invest in the latest Teaching and Learning resources to ensure our students experience the best learning environment.

4. Make a positive contribution to the school community

Brayton High School is at the heart of the local community and we encourage our students to take on leadership roles to develop their social, moral and community roles. Examples of our student leadership programme include:

  • An active school council
  • A well developed prefects system in Year 11
  • Reading buddies who support Year 7 readers
  • Regional young music leaders
  • Regional sport ambassadors
  • Student volunteers who work with primary students on a variety of projects

Brayton High School is a good and improving school – I hope that after viewing our website you want to be a part of the exciting developments.
