Latest Information

GCE and GCSE certificates

From 10th December both GCE and GCSE certificates will be ready for collection from the Exam Office. Also, we are still holding certificates from previous years which we would ask former students to collect ASAP please.

Do you shop online?

You can help raise money for the school by shopping online with easyfundraising.org.uk. There are no catches and it's completely free to use.
It's really simple - just shop online via easyfundraising.org.uk with over 2,700 well known retailers like Amazon, Argos, MandS, eBay (and many more!) and whenever you buy something online, the retailer makes a donation to your chosen good cause.
It doesn't cost you a single penny extra and all money raised will be donated back to the school from the High School Association [click the link at foot of this website to get started].

Paying for Trips On-line

Our school finance office has asked us to let parents know that they are able to pay for school trips online via Parentpay if they wish. This is a more secure method as it means that students don’t need to bring in large amounts of cash or cheques, and payments might not sit in the bottom of a schoolbag for a week! If a parent would like to use this option then they need to let Mrs Simpson or one of the support staff in the finance office know so the payment items can to be added to their account as it is done on an individual basis. Contact f.simpson@bhs.sch.im or phone 648700.
