Our History & Vision

BFS has a unique legacy, being created by the local community to serve the families from Westbury-on-Trym and its locality.

BFS is an ambitious school which works to ensure every child makes excellent progress from his or her starting point and experiences a breadth of opportunities which develop the whole person.

We want our young people to leave BFS with confidence and a strong belief that they can make the best of their life chances and be positive citizens with a strong moral compass. Success, to us, is a broad statement about the whole person and is linked to knowing oneself and being equipped to thrive in this fast-moving, ever changing world.

Community. Ambition. Opportunity

We believe in promoting equality of opportunity:

  1. Encouraging individuality and good character
  2. Promoting tolerance and celebrating diversity
  3. Providing a varied range of experiences to enrich the lives of our young people
  4. Offering a wide range of links with employers, further education colleges and universities
