Letter to parents of May 2020 leavers

Dear Parents Your child’s year group are sharing a somewhat unique experience in having their GCSE results being awarded wholly on the basis of their teachers judgements rather than a final exam. For me this highlights the most important part of education is always about doing, not testing. Exam results help to get students onto the next course or training program, but once students are there the skills and knowledge that they have gained through taking part in learning is what is going to be most useful. What BHES is all about, is helping students to develop through taking part in the education that we offer to them. When students leave BHES we always ask for feedback. What worked well? and how could we have made it better? If you could follow this link to a feedback form and fill it in I would be very grateful. https://forms.gle/bvW1fcrzdKeYGP24A After Friday (22 nd May) as soon as we have confirmation from the government about GCSE grades we will let students know how we will get their grades to them when they are released.. Finally, I want to wish you all the best for the future and to thank you for working with BHES staff to help us in our work with your child. Yours faithfully. Jim Bowyer Head BHES & The Meriton
