A: I heard about BCS from some friends. We decided to have a look around and found there were loads of opportunities. I saw that there was a Rowing Academy, which was a huge bonus for me as rowing is one of my passions.
A: I joined as soon as I could in Year 7. Sessions include a lot of on the river practice and also in the gym. It's a lot of fun - I would love to continue with it if I had the chance after school.
A: With all the Co-Curricular sessions available I jumped onto lots of opportunities. Anything to do with history I love, and I have really enjoyed taking part in the musicals - they are so much fun and I've made some unforgettable memories! The first musical I took part in was High School Musical in Year 9, and then Legally Blonde this year. In Year 9 I also wrote, with a friend of mine, the script for our performance of Peter Pan. Last year, I was also the White Rabbit in the Alice in Wonderland production which was brilliant!
A: It has got to be music and drama - a few weeks ago I was involved in the Spring Concert, and the musical evening Songs from the Show. I got to perform In both as I am part of the school choir and I also play the Oboe. There are so many opportunities!
A: I have two lessons a week in French, and I am also part of the Explorers, which is the next group up from Scouts. I have music lessons and I volunteer with the scouts. I also do band practise and performance at the Christchurch music centre.
A: Mr Edwards, who is a teacher of History. He understands our class really well and I find him really interesting as he used to be an archaeologist. Also, Mrs Gates in Biology.
"Yes. Although the classes and year groups are small there are so many different people here so you are able to fit into a friendship group easily. There are so many different people and cultures here."
A: It would have to be at the BOSCAs when I won the Junior Performance Award. It was the first time I had gone to the BOSCAs and it was an amazing event. I felt so proud!
A: I aim to stay at BCS for Sixth Form. I want to take History A-Level, because I want to go into archaeology. I am also looking at Geography and possibly Science. Moving on from there I am looking at universities where I can study Archaeology or Anthropology.
I would love to be a Prefect next year, and I will also apply for one of the Head's of School positions in Year 13 too.
A: Definitely come to BCS! There are so many opportunities here, whether you're interested in sport, academia or performing arts - the teachers are happy to support all interests.
A: Supportive, encouraging and welcoming.
