ESF’s integrated network of 22 schools and comprehensive programme of after-school activities help to bring out the best in every student through a personalised approach to learning and by inspiring curious minds.

The school is situated on a small site, 7 storeys high. There are class sizes of 30 with 3 classes in each year band. Standards at BHS are high and alongside our exceptional teachers we have education assistants in all classes to assist all learners. As an IB school, the curriculum draws upon the philosophies and framework of the Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organisation and uses an inquiry-based, investigative style of teaching and learning.

The teaching staff are well qualified, experienced and work closely with colleagues in the other ESF schools. Staff-student relationships are excellent and are based on a strong sense of mutual respect. BHS is an inclusive school which values diversity and has an embedded culture of inclusion which permeates all aspects of school life.  Central to the life of the school, is the positive community spirit and the strong partnerships with parents.
