Every year when Year 6 pupils join us for Transition Day we invite them to take part in our Summer Reading Challenge and every year we are dazzled by their dedication and enthusiasm to the challenge.

There are two separate challenges to choose from, this means there is something for everyone. An example of tasks from the Star challenge include, reading up to three books, making a list, mind map or Wordle of everything they know about one of the characters in one of the books, plus writing a review about another. The Superstar challenge is a little harder, pupils have to read up to five books, rewrite the ending of one of the books so it is completely different to the original and write a diary entry from the perspective of one of the minor characters; reflecting on the events in the story.

We had some amazing entries this year and our panel of judges were very impressed by the standard of work. There were ten prize winners, all receiving fantastic prizes ranging from vouchers, Kindles and video cameras with the top prize being a tablet won by Thomas James, a former pupil at Baildon C of E School.

Well done to all the avid readers who enjoyed the Summer Reading Challenge and congratulations to all our finalists.

  • Community

    • Good community links add relevance and interest to students’ work. We have strong business links and work closely with voluntary groups, our local primary schools and other organisations. Our growing partnership with local providers is a real strength.

      We are keen to be ‘community partners’. Students and staff are active members of local focus groups and attend local forums. As the lead secondary school within the Shipley Achieving Success (SAS) partnership we are proactive in our support with young people and their families. Our Extended School provision is wide ranging and offers opportunities to engage in after school and holiday clubs together with a wide range of workshops.

    • We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed.  We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.

      We are proud of our comprehensive school principles and our daily work is centred on four key values; summarised as together we can make a difference; resilient to change; ambitious to excel and caring for the lives of individuals. We are a school with great aspirations; proud of our history and heritage, yet always looking to the future – celebrating student well-being, high academic standards and achievement for all.
