Welcome to Sowerby Bridge High School
It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of SBHS. I look forward to working with you and your child. We are a diverse cultural community welcoming students into our inclusive school. SBHS is full of amazing students who play a significant part in their own learning and contribute to the decision making processes in school. SBHS has caring, dedicated staff who nurture and develop our students to feel safe and happy so they can be the best they can be. Our mission statement ‘Together, striving for success for every individual’ underpins all of our work.
I have a passionate commitment to a child's right to a good education in a good school. In 2013 pupils achieved our best ever results, giving them the opportunity to access a higher level of education. Post-16, the average point score per entry is the best in Calderdale for the second year running. Building on our ethos of continuous improvement makes our school one where we raise aspirations and transform lives.
Our website is designed to help you gain a better understanding of our remarkable community. If you would like to visit the school to see for yourself, please do not hesitate to contact the school. I look forward to meeting you.
