Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to introduce you to Broughton High School.  We are a popular, high-achieving mixed 11-16 community school with a proud history of success and high expectations.  We are located in the village of Broughton towards the north of Preston.

Broughton is a friendly, family orientated school with a strong feeling of everyone being part of the ‘team’; pupils, staff, governors and parents. Our pupils are provided with numerous opportunities to be the best that they can be and to experience the joy of success in an atmosphere in which all feel safe, cared for, valued and inspired to learn. The ‘team’ at Broughton are well qualified and have a proven track record of going the extra mile to ensure pupils are successful and happy at our school.  We are also extremely fortunate to have supportive, well-informed parents who involve themselves with the life of the school and naturally want the very best for their son/daughter.



In 2012, OFSTED judged Broughton High School to be outstanding in all areas. Our GCSE results continue to be consistently above the national averages and pupils achieve extremely well.  However, life at Broughton is much more than examination results. There are a huge number of extra-curricular clubs and  opportunities for our pupils from music, drama and sport to the Duke of Edinburgh Award and trips abroad. We encourage all our pupils to ‘get involved’.

The best aspect of our school is undoubtedly our pupils. They are polite, smart, well-behaved and extremely hard working. If you would like to see our school in action and experience our family atmosphere please contact me at school and I will arrange for one of our pupils to show you around.
