As we come to the end of another busy and successful year the weather is warming up and hopefully summer is arriving in time for the start of our summer holidays.
Please read and share with your friends and neighbours our One Voice newsletter. This highlights many of the activities and events we have taken part in over the last few months.
We have said goodbye to our Year 11 students who have worked so hard attending many extra classes preparing to do their best in their exams. The final assembly was tinged with emotion as we looked back over their time at BCHS. We are proud to have played our part in helping them to grow and mature into caring and adorable young men and women. We welcome them back for their results on Thursday 24 August at 10.00am.
Thank you for choosing BCHS for your son or daughter, one of our highlights this term was a visit from her Majesty’s Ofsted Inspectors. They judged our school to be a good school and were overwhelmingly positive and praised our ethos and values. We are delighted that in September 2017 we are full in years 7, 8, 9 and 11 with only a few places left in year 10. My focus with all our students remains on very high expectations which include: attendance, uniform, behaviour and quality of work. I would like to ask you to support us in ensuring your son/daughter returns in full school uniform. Hair needs to be natural colours and dip dyed hair is not acceptable. Make up, false tans and false nails are also inappropriate for school.
Phones are not banned however, they need to be switched off and ear phones need to be in pockets and out of sight during the school day. In an emergency, if you need to contact your child during school hours you can contact the school office who will then pass on your message.
This July we say goodbye to a number of staff across the school that move into either new positions or new ventures in their lives. We wish all these staff the very best for their futures and thank them for their contributions to the success of BCHS.
The school closes for the summer holidays at 2.00pm on Friday 21 July 2017. Please have a wonderful summer and stay safe. We look forward to welcoming you back on Tuesday 5 September 2017.
