Values and vision

Blackburn Central High School with Crosshill has suggested that it recognises and wishes to prepare students for the multicultural, multi-faith, cosmopolitan, diverse and ever-changing nature of UK society.

The school prides itself on playing a crucial role in the development of young people who are safe, knowledgeable, respectful, responsible and decent members of a British and global society.


“Leaders have been determined and successful in improving teaching and students’ achievement. Frequent checks on students’ progress and plenty of support for individuals in danger of falling behind have helped to accelerate progress. Teaching has been checked frequently for its quality and good training and support for staff have led to improvements. As a consequence of good teaching, students are making good progress and the results they gain in examinations, especially in English and mathematics, are far better than at the time of the previous inspection.”
