Senior School

In Seniors students are offered a broad, balanced curriculum at KS3 and individual pathways at KS4 that challenge, motivate and inspire. The pathways are designed to allow all students to flourish. Students are guided and encouraged along the way by dedicated, experienced teachers and a support team who ensure that girls receive the tailor-made provision they require, looking after their well-being at all times. State-of-the-art specialist rooms allow students to work in top class facilities in safe surroundings.

Our provision for the more able is outstanding and we ensure that lessons stretch gifted and talented students to give breadth and depth to their learning.

We believe in educating the whole child and therefore Senior school offers academic study combined with a wide variety of enrichment opportunities led by expert staff. These include individual and small group music tuition, choir and orchestra and sports such as swimming, tennis and hockey.

At BHSA we make sure that every student aims to exceed expectations and achieve well at GCSE, preparing them for the next stage in their learning with confidence and optimism.
