Secondary Staff

Staff is the single most important resource at any school. With this in mind, in the Secondary school at BSB, we have specialist teaching, administrative and nursing staff as well as security guards and the main office staff. Each is important and has a rôle to play in the life of every pupil in the Secondary School.

In recruiting staff we look for the ability to work well with young people as well as academic qualifications. Both are important if the pupils are to gain a sense of happiness and well-being in addition to excellent teaching. If you visit the school you will see how carefully we have considered these issues in our recruitment policy and practice.
