BCEHS Friends trip to York
Year 7 Mathematics Evening
Staff from our maths department held an evening for parents of year 7 pupils when they explained how the new maths works in school and how students could be supported at home. There were puzzles and tests and confusion and competition – some very intense competition as it turns out! Our thanks to the staff who planned and delivered the evening and the parents and pupils who turned out for it and contributed so eagerly to it.
New Examinations, Assessment and Reporting
We have posted a presentation which explains the changes being made to examinations, assessment and reporting and how they will affect students and parents. The changes have already begun in school and will take place over a period so the current presentation will necessarily change as developments take place over the coming months.

Duke of Edinburgh Award Training – September 2015
On the 4th September 52 Year 11 students headed off to Waddecar Scout camp to complete their training and practice expedition for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. They were met by their instructors from Sam Sykes Ltd and got straight into training. They were taught how to put up their tents, how to use the stoves, first aid scenarios and then headed off to get to grips with navigating with a map and compass. After a full day they headed off to their tents to try and get a good nights sleep before two days of practice expedition.
Bright and early the next morning they set off on their expedition which involved two full days of walking and another night in a tent. All the groups successfully completed this expedition (most with smiles on their faces) and are now fully prepared for their assessment on the 3rd and 4th of October.
