Spe­cial re­la­tion­ship at heart of ev­ery­thing

Gloucestershire Echo - - EDUCATION CHOICES -

YOU are warmly in­vited to join us dur­ing our open week where you can tour the school ev­ery morn­ing (Mon­day to Thurs­day at 9.15am) and/or join us for our open evening on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 26, start­ing at 6pm.

Bal­car­ras is a very friendly and happy school. We are very proud that vis­i­tors of­ten com­ment on the spe­cial re­la­tion­ship be­tween stu­dents and teach­ers.

This is at the heart of ev­ery­thing we do and it is the rea­son why our stu­dents go on to achieve some of the best re­sults of any school in the coun­try.

Bal­car­ras is a com­pre­hen­sive school and we are proud to be so. We be­lieve that ev­ery stu­dent de­serves an out­stand­ing ed­u­ca­tion and we have high ex­pec­ta­tions of all of our young peo­ple.

Sup­port­ing them as in­di­vid­u­als and en­cour­ag­ing them to do their best is what we thrive on, whether that’s go­ing on to study his­tory at Ox­ford, mov­ing into an ap­pren­tice­ship, go­ing di­rectly into em­ploy­ment or what­ever.

One thing mat­ters above all else – young peo­ple should en­joy their ed­u­ca­tion – they should walk to school with a skip in their step look­ing for­ward to en­gag­ing lessons and a range of ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

This sim­ple vi­sion is what mo­ti­vates us day in day out to cre­ate a school which is vi­brant, happy and highly suc­cess­ful.

Bal­car­ras head­teacher Do­minic Burke
