Welcome to Bridlington School and thank you for visiting our website.

Bridlington School is a maintained secondary school for 11 - 18 year olds, based in Bridlington. We were judged to be a good school in our most recent Ofsted inspection in June 2017. Our ambition is to become an outstanding school and we are working extremely hard to achieve this goal. We have approximately 980 students on roll and numbers are increasing year on year as our reputation as a centre of excellence grows. In 2016, for the 5th consecutive year we won the SSAT Excellence Award for the exceptional progress our students make between Year 7 and Year 11.

Our school motto is taken from the Latin from our original logo and directly translates as ‘They hand on the torch of life’. We have brought this motto to life and centred it around our vision: to be an inclusive community where students’ passion for learning is ignited, they are excited by achievement and recognised for success.  

Care, guidance and support are a top priority for us. We believe that every student deserves the best possible level of academic and emotional support, tailored to their needs. Our support team is comprehensive and includes Pastoral Managers, Heads of Year, Heads of Upper School (Y9, 10 and 11) and Lower School (Y7 and 8), a Head of Sixth Form, a Counsellor, Youth Support Service Advisors and an Attendance and Welfare Manager. These staff are always on hand to help answer any queries or concerns that students or their parents/carers may have.

If you would like to arrange a visit to our school, please contact the School Office on 01262 672593.
