Fixture of the Week
Our U14 girls’ football team made the trek to Stoke Lodge earlier this week to take on a formidable Cotham outfit. The balmy afternoon skies were at odds with the playing surface; a quagmire making our passing game a challenge. Holly Neville and Anna Fraser asserted control, firing out precision passes with geometric accuracy; a mathematical equation. The wingers kept things tight, both Holly Freke and Polly Garton leaving the Cotham defence chasing shadows of shadows. Tantalising crosses hung teasingly in the air and it wasn’t long before the floodgates opened in a seven goal thriller; the final score: 6 – 1 to BFS.
Words from the Acting Headteacher
This week has seen not one, but two open evenings. I am in awe of the dedication and hard work of our staff who ensured that both events were a fantastic success with all of the students who attended enthused and engaged. On Wednesday we held an open evening for our Sixth Form candidates, with a focus on those from other schools. Students were represented from across Bristol and there was an air of excitement surrounding the new Sixth Form. On Thursday our Year 9s experienced their Guided Choices evening and were able to meet with teachers from every subject area and get a wider sense of the subject at GCSE. It was a very busy evening with a huge range of activities; in short, a fantastic showcase for our outstanding lessons.
