Regrettably, due to the current coronavirus situation, we were not be able to hold a physical open evening this year as we would usually do. This is the same among all of the local state secondary schools. In order to get a feel for what life is like for students at The Bishop’s Stortford High School, we have created a short film for all Prospective Students and Parents to view.  Please click here to view our film.  

If your child has an Educational Health Care Plan and is currently in Year 6, you can contact the school office to arrange a guided tour .

We realise this isn’t quite the same as being able to look around the school in person and talk to our staff and students, but hopefully it will give you a sense of our values and aims. Choosing a secondary school is an important decision with lots of factors to consider. I hope that by watching our video and reading our Ofsted report from 2017, you’ll be impressed by the ‘truly all-round education’ we provide at  TBSHS and will want to be part of the Black and Gold community next year.

Kind regards,

Dale Reeve
