Sixth Form places are still available at BCCS

If you would like to study A levels at BCCS and have met our minimum entry requirements (6,6,5,5,5 with a 4 in English Lang or Lit) then we may have a curriculum to suit you. Contact us on 01173535000 or via email on to discuss what we can offer you. 

Learning Support

At BCCS we believe that all young people should be able to achieve their very best. Some of our students need additional help to learn. Sometimes this is known as Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

We keep a register of students who require additional help to learn. This register includes all students with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) or Statements as well as any students with identified additional needs who are not meeting the national age related expectations. We will work with the students, teachers, parents and carers as well as outside professionals to ensure these students get the best possible help. This help can be part of our normal inclusive BCCS lessons or in additional specialised lessons or provision.

During their time with us children will grow into young adults. It is our responsibility to  support our students in preparing for adulthood and to becoming happy and independent people. We prioritise being available to our students and providing excellent pastoral care so we may fully support them.

The Government has set out how it expects us to provide for children who have additional needs at school. Our approach meets these expectations.
