A very warm welcome back to BVIS. I trust you have all had a wonderful summer with your families. It was great to see all the children back this week and we have a record number of new families joining our wonderful community. I know you will join me in welcoming our new families to the school.
We had a hugely successful summer in school that started with our three week summer school. Mr Kenny and Mr Williams did a fantastic job in creating a very memorable and enjoyable experience for the children.
I am delighted to announce that we had record examination results this year. Our Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13 students excelled in their IGCSE and International A Level courses. Almost 90% of our students achieved 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths at IGCSE and a very large number of students achieved the very top A and B grades. A number of students in Year 13 achieved the maximum A* grade across all their subjects a phenomenal achievement that places them in the top 5% in the world. Congratulations to all our students for some spectacular results.
As ever we have started the school year at a pace and already the children are hard at work. In the coming weeks you will be receiving information regarding dates and times for you to meet with the teacher or tutor of your child. I would encourage you all to attend if possible.
Finally, I would like to say an enormous thank you for continuing to put your faith and trust in our school and as ever we shall strive to ensure we provide the very best educational experience for your children. I am thoroughly looking forward to what promises to be another excellent year at BVIS.
I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
