Educating approximately 1150 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large co-educational sixth form, of which a third are female students.

As the Headteacher, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website and our school. We pride ourselves on being an academic school built on traditional principles and high standards, within a Christian ethos, which is reflected in our excellent results. In summer 2016 our students achieved 80% 5+ A*- C grades (inc. English & Maths) at GCSE and 58% A*- B at A-Level and in March 2017 Ofsted judged the school to be Outstanding in every category.

The school’s motto: ‘Respice, Aspice, Prospice’ means we must look to the past, the present and the future. We are keen to promote traditional values of courtesy, respect and good discipline, though we also recognise the need to provide all our students with the tools they require to flourish and succeed, both now and in the future, and help them develop the skills and qualities that will ensure they are ready for the challenges that lie ahead.

Our focus is on delivering high quality, engaging lessons and providing students with the care and guidance that allows them to succeed. We combine this with our extremely successful and wide-ranging enrichment programme, in which all students are encouraged to participate, as we believe that leading rich and varied lives allows them to flourish.

We build positive relationships, which means all students are provided with the support they need to really engage with, and enjoy, school life. We encourage an open flow of communication between school and home so that parents really feel in touch with their child’s development. TBSHS is an active member of the Bishop’s Stortford Education Trust (BSET) and the local teaching school alliance, Catalyst, as we feel that collaborating locally brings many mutual benefits to each school.

We are fully committed to preparing our young people to be thoughtful, capable, responsible citizens of the future. We provide a ‘Truly all-round education’ and I firmly believe this to be a great school and a special place for children to learn and grow.
