“BCS provides a nurturing environment where pupils are encouraged to excel beyond their potential. BCS pupils become part of a family who leave us as young confident leaders ready to make a difference in the world.”
We value the contribution and achievement of every pupil
BCS provides a nurturing environment where the happiness of the pupils comes first. We offer a significant number of co-curricular opportunities to pupils, which help to instil and develop the skills we want our daughters and sons to have as they grow up. Consequently, BCS pupils leave the school as well-balanced, confident and versatile young people.
