Blackburn High School has a sixty year history of delivering a dynamic curriculum that meets the varied needs of all our students. Our curriculum is underpinned by our school motto – Ad Lucem Crescimus (Growing towards the light). We aim to create a dynamic and inclusive community where all students grow together to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens.
