Biddenham is a thriving multi class, multi-cultural 11-19 comprehensive school which is rated ‘Good’ in all areas by Ofsted (November 2015). Our students are tremendous and we have a great deal of success ensuring that we get them to where they want to be in life. Every year we send over 100 students to university – many to the Russell Group universities and we have a strong track record for placing students at Oxbridge.
Not only do we have a good track record with our students but our staff benefit from high quality professional development – ranging from Masters Degrees to National College courses to high quality in-house provision. We believe that we develop our staff in the interests of Biddenham, but also for the wider comprehensive system as a whole. This year, already, we have two staff who have secured significant middle leader roles in other schools. Biddenham is an inspiring and exciting place to work with our new year 7 and 8 provision adding to the experience. Teachers enjoy working at Biddenham, feeling they make a real difference to the lives of the young people who journey through with us. Teaching is a job that brings immense satisfaction and at Biddenham we look to develop our staff, whilst ensuring that they enjoy working with our students.
