This year we welcome our second cohort of students following subjects chosen from our impressive and carefully constructed curriculum offer.
Our Year 13 and new Year 12 students are a diverse and friendly bunch, committed to excellence in everything they do, whether that involves deciphering complex equations, analysing the human condition or taking part in Sixth Form sport and performances.
Come and be a part of something special.
Our first A Level results day is just around the corner! Students are welcome to join us form 9.00am on Thursday 16 August in the Sixth Form Common Room to receive their results. We are also putting on pastries and coffee to help settle the nerves. Good luck to all our Year 13 students!
Please see Mr Walker's newsletter to all September 2018 applicants.
Our Enrolment Days are 24 and 25 August, and the Year 12 Induction Day is 5 September.
Enrolment packs and further details will be sent electronically to all applicants in the coming weeks.
UCAS applications for 2019 are now well away. We have been working hard helping prepare our students in preparation to submit their applications. See our UCAS timeline here.
We were delighted with our first Ofsted inspection in which inspectors judged the 16-19 provision at BFS to be Good.
Students were found to make good progress in most subjects, and to develop positive relationships with the teaching staff. Inspectors noted that our teachers know the students well, enabling the students to feel comfortable approaching staff and that students feel well looked after at BFS Sixth Form. The report draws attention to the high aspirations of the school and its students and that the majority of our current Year 13 have applied for university or employment, including several Oxbridge applications.
Congratulations to our Sixth Form rugby team who convincingly beat Cathedral Choir School 17-0 in their first ever Sixth Form rugby game. It was a dominant performance with some fantastic inter-play and off-loading. Scott H was particularly brilliant in loose play, winning Most Valuable Player! Well done to the whole team.
