The Billericay School / Home
We are approaching the time of year when bad weather could cause disruption to the school so please make sure both you and your child/children have a plan in place should it be necessary to close the school at short notice.
In the event of a sudden school closure, students need to know exactly what to do and where to go. If the school is unable to open for any reason, or in the event a requirement to dismiss students early, messages will be broadcast on BBC Essex and Heart FM.
Details are: BBC Essex (103.5 or 95.3 FM) or Heart FM Essex (96.3 or 102.6 FM). Information will also be on our school website www.billericay.essex.sch.uk

The school switchboard is likely to be busy in the event of a sudden closure, so it is vital for you to have arrangements in place for your child/children should this occur.
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.

Year 7 students from this school made the news for real on 21 March 2013 when they took part in BBC News School Report. We published the news by 1600 GMT on the News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and read the news!
Not only did students research and write their own reports, but they subsequently presented them in the "newsrooms" which were parts of the Music, English and Media departments transformed in just one day! Some reports included video footage of special interviews which students filmed themselves.
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!)
Please contact Mrs Clare in the RBLC by telephone or email the school office for a copy priced at £10. All profits will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital and The James Dorrington Fund. This would make a fantastic present, and a valued memento of time spent at the school.
