So Many Choices
So many choices – academic, social, musical, sporting,
business, performing, creative, personal development,
opportunities are many at BCS, almost too many, and you will be able to
your own choice to fill your week to suit your needs. The school aims
to let you fly! Our Heads of Sixth Form, Mrs Crane and Mr Sheehan,
and all the sixth form staff, will work with you to ensure that your
years are exciting, successful, rewarding and fun.
BCS believes in individual programmes of study. We arrange our subject
blocks to ensure that
you have every opportunity of choosing your first choice subjects.
However, we have a unique way of arranging
the timetable and this ensures that we are able to break away from the
subject blocks and mix and match subjects to suit. In addition, we have
a link with Highcliffe
Sixth Form – this means that we can tap into their subject blocks too.
The choice of subjects is huge, the
combination is almost limitless. We will
plan a timetable for every student individually.
And of course, the extracurricular choices are vast and
extensive. Students are spoilt for
choice. There is something for
everyone. An Y13 student commented:
“From the first day I joined the sixth form I was welcomed by everyone.
school really encourages individuality and expression. We are all so
different, some of us are sporty,
others arty, others real academics, some are quite lazy – yet somehow
to get us all working together, working for each other, having fun and
achieving. No one is seen as different, we all just get
on with everyone else. The staff really
know how to motivate us, and they work so hard putting on so many
trips, productions and matches for us to enjoy.
And above all they really do know every one of our strengths and
weaknesses. They are our friends. I am sure this is why we all seem to
better in exams that we expect.”
