Welcome to The Billericay School
"We provide a secure, caring and disciplined environment where students can learn and teachers can teach."
- Mrs S Hammond, (Headteacher)
This web site seeks to introduce you to our school, outline some of the many opportunities it offers and to demonstrate our aim to provide a quality education for every child.
Our students are remarkable young people. We want them to have energy and enthusiasm for all that life has to offer; to live as responsible citizens and to succeed academically in our rapidly changing society. We wish to develop their unique talents and aspirations, and give them our support, attention and guidance in every endeavour.
The purpose of The Billericay School is to offer students the opportunity to reach their full potential. We wish to ensure that all children at the school achieve the highest possible standards, whether it be in the classroom, or in the extensive range of opportunities we offer to students at all stages of their education.

Calling all Past Students
The Billericay School is working with the charity Future First to reconnect us with our former students and keep in touch with our school leavers. Our alumni can support us in so many ways, from volunteers and in-school speakers to work experience providers and fundraisers.
We are looking for former students to join our network and they can sign up using the following link: http://www.networks.futurefirst.org.uk/former-student/billericay.
If you would like to know more about the Future First programme, you can contact our Networks Officer, Samantha by e-mail to Samantha@futurefirst.org.uk or by phone 0207 239 8933 or call the school directly and speak to Mrs Pike or Mrs Smith.
The Billericay School Book
You can purchase our very own book written by Sylvia Kent, a well-known local author from the school RBLC. Sylvia wrote the book especially for The Billericay School and it includes photographs and reminiscences over the years which provide a fascinating insight to the local history of Billericay and the people who lived there (and still do!)
This would make an excellent present for an ex-student or parent of the school or equally for a newcomer.
Please contact Mrs Clare in the RBLC by telephone or email the school office for a copy priced at £7.50. All profits will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital and The James Dorrington Fund.
