My child loves music. Can my child learn an instrument at BSB?
BSB is an Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) centre and this is reflected in our Juilliard Curriculum Overview. At BSB every student over 5 years old learns an instrument. In addition to the weekly class music lessons, we offer around 30 different musical courses. Private tuition is also available in all classes. Our students also have the opportunity to perform and also to compete in overseas music competitions.
It would be great if my child could join a club after school. What do you offer?
We offer over 100 after school activities and lunch clubs each year, which ensure our students are well rounded and active. Our clubs include a variety of opportunities including academic options, native language input, Lego robotics, martial arts, cooking, sports and music to name but a few.
How do you encourage future leaders?
The leadership programmes in the Primary school include House Captains, Student Council, Playground Prefects amongst others are used to give students as young as 6 years old a voice and responsibility for their school. In Secondary school, the Student Guild, International Award, Model United Nations and a prefect system are some of the opportunities our students have to develop their leadership skills.
Being a school for students from 1 to 18 years old, what opportunities are there for joint activities?
There are many opportunities to work with students of other ages and across the school community at BSB. Secondary students complete community work in primary school by reading with students and taking part in joint projects (cookery classes, art days, reading etc). Once a student reaches Year 6, we provide a comprehensive programme of transition opportunities as they approach the age for secondary school.
