Reading for Pleasure during lockdown

We encourage all our students to read for pleasure on a regular basis,  something that is even more important with increased screen time.  Students in Year 7 & 8 should continue to develop their reading and literacy skills through Accelerated Reader.  By using the link below you can find out which books are suitable for your reading level and interests.  Once you've finished a book it is important that you complete a quiz about it.

BFS are delighted to celebrate the success of their Year 11 cohort who have continued the school’s upward trend in exam results. Despite not being able to sit the exams this year, we are pleased our Year 11s were awarded the grades that their hard work and endeavour richly deserved.Headteacher, Su King, said, ‘I am immensely proud of the resilience and positive attitude shown by our Year 11s during what has been a challenging and unprecedented time. I have no doubt that these young people will emerge from this experience even stronger and more determined to succeed in the next stage of their education. We are delighted to announce that we have record numbers of students who have decided to continue their A Level studies here at BFS. This is a reflection of the continued growing success and confidence our students have in the quality of education and the supportive community of at BFS’.
Mr MacBlain, Year Leader for Year, said ‘It has been a real pleasure and privilege to have worked with the year group for the last five years. I am delighted that in these challenging circumstances they have achieved a fantastic set of results that their hard work and endeavour deserves’

Year 11 students will be taking part in an adapted certificate celebration as soon as circumstances allow. We can’t wait to finally be able to celebrate their success formally with them.
