Executive Principal’s Blog – 27 May 2016


I would like to thank all staff at BMS for really going the extra mile this half term for our hardworking students – particularly those who are sitting their all-important public examinations. The additional two hour final revision sessions led by our top teachers have been very powerful indeed; students have also been making the most of the free banana ‘brain fuel’ on offer in the school restaurant before each exam and bottles of water for hydration in the gym.

Over the next two Saturdays between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm there are GSCE Maths Revision Sessions taking place (as well as our usual general Study Saturdays in the LRC) and tomorrow a ‘Predicted Paper 2’ will be made available to all students who attend. This will really help to sharpen revision on the key topics that are likely to come up, so don’t’ miss these powerful sessions that will help you nail the extra 10%!

I would like to remind all other students to go through their exercise books very carefully this half term and ensure that all marking and feedback stickers have been completed properly and spelling, punctuation and grammar corrections have been made. Ensure that you have also responded to those powerful instructions and comments that all teachers are giving you to ensure that you really maximise the progress you are making at BMS.

Research shows that, if you get this process right, you can add the equivalent of an additional 9 months learning in one year.

Do also take time to enjoy a good break and don’t forget to click on the link to read about the rest of this week’s BMS News……..
