A Desire for Excellence

With an emphasis on the development of inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people, we provide the tools to develop intellectually, physically, ethically and emotionally in a way that promotes independence of thought and collaborative working practices. BHS students pursue knowledge and conceptual understanding in a wide variety of subjects and are encouraged at all times to make links between their learning and the world in which they live.

The following documents contain the breakdown of your child’s subjects per term and include both formal and informal assessment dates. As the information is presented in a table, please enable scrolling for a better reading experience.
