Our School Day

Our students at BCB enjoy a busy day full of activities within a stimulating, safe and positive learning environment. 

This includes lessons and learning experiences in and outside of the classroom, assemblies and tutor time, lunch and recreation and after school activities. 

Students in Early Years and Primary school remain with their class teacher and teaching assistant whilst specialist teachers provide individual or group sessions in Portuguese, PE and Music. Secondary students follow a comprehensive timetable delivered by teachers who are subject specialists.
