Some of these pupils have been part of our school community since joining nursery at the age of 3, while others joined our sixth after GCSEs.

Despite the concerns created by negative stories in the press, almost all BHSA students have secured their first-choice place.

Rebecca Mahony, Principal, said, “We are so proud of the accomplishments of our students this year. They have shown great determination and resilience throughout these incredibly difficult and turbulent few years. Many thanks to all the staff and parents for their incredible support throughout.

If you would like to be part of our success story, we are always open to applications for a place in 6ème.
