Another tumultuous week at BFS, the biggest change from the norm being the commencement of GCSE mock exams proper which started, not literally, with a bang on Monday. As we would expect our students have demonstrated a commitment and desire to succeed that is beyond reproach. Yet another step on the journey to August, life post-GCSE, and the extended holiday that is a chink of light at the end of a long tunnel.
In other news, last night we welcomed parents and students to our Year 9 subject evening. Staff outlined the progress being made and the improvements that would be required for students to meet our expectations. The evening was wonderfully positive. A 90% turnout was equally impressive, demonstrating the commitment and dedication of our students, parents and staff.
Elsewhere, on Tuesday we hosted the Bristol round of the Young Chef competition. The best and brightest chefs, cooks and commis from Redmaids, Redland Green and St Bede’s joined our gastronomic masters. The full report from Mr Dayment is overleaf. However it will suffice to say that once again our students wiped the plate with them and we will progress on to the District round.
