When students are well and happy, they are more likely to succeed academically, so at BSM we put student welfare first. It is at the heart of every decision we make. We work hard to develop a strong and close relationship between each student, between school and home, and to nurture a community that is part of school life, engaged, and supportive.
We prioritise teaching students the kind of strategies they need to develop as resilient, empathetic and positive global citizens. This requires encouraging students to apply learned skills – supporting them as they put theory into practice – then guiding them through a process of self-reflection in terms of personal choices made, actions, and outcomes.
Our approach is holistic. Primary Class Teachers and Senior Form Tutors work in close collaboration with a team of Student Coordinators, Pastoral Tutors, and Welfare and School Counsellor to ensure that we have a deep knowledge of our students so we can provide maximum support.
