New Students 2017

I am delighted that your child has been offered a place at BSCA. This is an exciting time as they embark on the next stage of their education.

This is the start of a more independent time for them and we have a team of staff in place to help and support you and your child through the next 5 to 7 years.

Our values can be summarised as:

  • Respect
  • Compassion
  • Community
  • Peace

It is through these values that we will build on the progress we have made. We will continue to develop the mind set and culture within the Academy so that every member of our community, students and staff strives to make progress, taking immense pride in their effort and work.

Our students will leave us with:

  • Good academic outcomes
  • The Christian values of respect, tolerance and service
  • A positive and enduring outlook

This means that they live happy, healthy and purposeful lives – irrespective of their background or circumstances.

School Visits

We will shortly be liaising with new student's current School to arrange for us to come and visit them so we can share with them what to expect from the transition process, their first day in September, during the rest of their time here with us, as well as the opportunity to ask us questions.

Our Induction Day for news students and the Induction Evening for parents/carers and new students is to be held on Thursday 6th July.  Further correspondence about this day will be sent out.
