  • Creating an ethos in which everyone is valued and respected and where students are motivated, supported and encouraged to strive for success.

  • Providing the highest quality of teaching and learning, through a skilled and appropriately trained and dedicated staff team.

  • All students will access a range of accredited courses which will increase learning opportunities and raise achievements.

  • Providing care, support and guidance for all our students through a caring and nurturing community resulting in their excellent behaviour and high quality personal development.

  • Preparing our students for adult life by taking part in supported internships.

Supported internships:

Students within the sixth form at BBAB have the opportunity to take part in supported internships through the support of LSEC and Skills for Grwoth. This program is designed to support students in achieving a range of skills required for their working life through a regular work placements that builds on employability skills which could lead on to an apprenticeship at the end of the internship.

Applying for our sixth form:

The application process for all non BBA students is the same for all other students and can be found in the parent – new admissions section of this website.

Students currently studying in Yr11 will be asked to apply to the 6th from should they decide to attend in yr12. A timetable of application and interview will be sent to parents via letter in the spring term.

16 – 19 Bursary

All 6th form students are entitled to a small bursary payment on a monthly basis.

The key objective of the 16 to 19 Bursary is to provide financial support to our students aged between 16 to 19 (must be under 19 on 31st August of the academic year they start course) who face financial barriers that may well stop them accessing education.
