The Billericay School / Home
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.
We provide a secure, caring and disciplined environment where students can learn and teachers can teach.
We are committed to Initial Teacher Training and we are the lead school for a partnership where 22 other schools have School Direct places.
Trainee Teacher positions are available through the Billericay School Direct Partnership, with the training being provided by Mid Essex Initial Teacher Training.

Year 7 students from this school will be making the news for real on 21 March 2013 as they take part in BBC News School Report. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on the News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and return to it later. In the meantime, take a look at what our students produced last year.
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 last year even included video footage of special interviews which students filmed themselves. This year's event will be on Thursday 21st March 2013, so watch this space!
Have a look at the variety of last year's reports which included:
Red Nose Day and the Tsunami Fundraising activities
Kingswood Gifted and Talented Trip
Inspirational Women Conference
The Olympics in Essex
The Fire in Billericay High Street
Mr Ullmann's Charity Bike Expedition
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.
