Our learners thrive in our team’s care, and benefit from our unique, split-site, all-through academy; benefitting from outstanding resources and facilities such as the swimming pool, computing suites, theatre space, drama studio, cooking rooms, science labs and extensive library. Specialist teaching in music, PE and languages also facilitate this outstanding provision.
Catering for girls aged 3 to 11, BHSA Juniors promotes a future-focused curriculum where learning opportunities are linked to real life situations and problems. Fluid and flexible, engaging and thought-provoking, BHSA girls are encouraged to grow as good friends and global citizens; flourish socially and academically and learn to think for themselves.
Daily skill n’drill lessons in key core skills such as arithmetic, phonics, spelling and grammar, and weekly guided sessions in reading, writing and reasoning ensure that our girls are well-equipped, fluent and confident enough to tackle the independent demands of our thematic lessons of Project eXplore.
Project eXplore topics can run for several weeks and encompass a plethora of skills, matters and processes from the Foundation subjects. BHSA Juniors inspires all learners through its broad and balanced curriculum and nurtures talent in humanities, the arts, science and technological subjects. There is a large emphasis on speaking, listening and presenting and in the tailored preparation for secondary education.
All pupils are expected to continue their secondary education here at BHSA Senior School.
