Welcome to the Backwell School website. Backwell School has established a reputation as one of Britain’s best performing comprehensive schools at GCSE and A Level. Year on year our students do achieve very highly – in exams, on the sports fields, and in local and national arenas. In its most recent inspection Ofsted judged both the School and the Sixth Form to be outstanding. Backwell is a Specialist school in Performing and Visual Arts, but its strengths are equally strong across all subject areas, and in the vast range of extra-curricular opportunities on offer to all our students. Backwell is a popular school – currently there are 1,300 students in Years 7 to 11 and 400 in the Sixth Form.
In May 2011, Backwell School became an Academy. The Governing Body, staff, parents and students worked together to create a Backwell School Charter
that states the aims and principles of Backwell School and ensures that Backwell School remains a school at the heart of its community.
We hope the website will tell you all you need to know about the school. If you want to find out more please phone or email us - we welcome visitors and enquiries.
