Virtual Open Evening 2021

We are delighted to welcome you to our Virtual Open Evening. We hope that the information below will give you a flavour of life at BFS.

Please watch our video and listen to our Headteacher, Susan King, as she gives you an insight into our vibrant and friendly community.  Scroll down the page to read or hear about our inspiring departments.

Thank you for taking the time to view our virtual prospectus which has been designed to allow you to find key information about life at BFS at your own convenience.

We are also looking forward to welcoming you personally to the school. This year our usual open evening event, planned for Thursday 30 September, has been adjusted to ensure we can safely risk assess our community due to the ongoing pandemic. Feedback from previous years has been very positive about the school tours during the school day. Instead of an open evening, we have organised a number of school tour dates for Year 6 families to book onto. Seeing the staff and students in action during the school day will enable you and your child to feel the warmth and energy that makes BFS such a special place to learn. There will be time to ask questions, talk to students about their experiences and tour the whole school during your visit. If any families are unable to attend during the day we can organise a later tour.

Please complete the booking form here.  

We know choosing the right secondary school for your child is a very important step. We are here to support you in making that decision. If you have any questions or would like our assistance through the admissions process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
