“At BHS, every student is given the opportunity to undertake this challenging programme, and this year 34 of the 40 graduates sat the full IB Diploma. Working with students and parents, we guide and support them over the two years, and help them reach, and often exceed, their potential. It is incredibly rewarding to see them realise the academic success that they have worked so hard to achieve.”
