About Us

Welcome message from Dr Robin Bevan, Headteacher

Since September 2007, I have been delighted to serve as Headteacher at Southend High School for Boys. Every day is rewarding. I enjoy being a part of this school and helping to shape our future. This website will help to give you a sense of our values, offers an insight into the vibrant activity that fills each week here, and will provide many of your answers, as you consider whether this is the right school for your child.

At Southend High School for Boys, talent is nurtured and learning is valued. Challenge is welcomed, participation is expected and achievement is prized. Pupils are happy, and prosper at the school.

As a grammar school, high academic expectations are central to our purpose, and these are sustained through an extensive programme of support and guidance. Pupils develop their confidence and enthusiasm through a wide range of creative, sporting and other endeavours.

Southend High School for Boys stands on a superb site, containing acres of sports fields, within walking distance of Prittlewell Station and the centre of Southend.  Pupils retain fond memories of their years at the school, and stay in contact for many years afterwards.

Our school preserves values and traditions from the past, and prepares pupils through a contemporary curriculum for the world of tomorrow. 

"Contemporary traditions: one with future and with past"
