Welcome back for Term 2 and Happy New Year to all of our BISI community. 

Here's hoping you all had a restful break following the end of term, which is always one of our busiest terms of the academic year. 

This week we share some highlights which took place over the last few days of the first term, during which, our staff polished off their acting skills for the staff parody of 'War of the Worlds'. 

Our new term kicks off with mock exams for Year 11 & 13 students ( and a select group of year 10's) for the next 2 weeks. Our only students who were set any kind of homework during the holidays, but a little revision will go a long way during term 3, when they'll only be in school for final exams. Not long to go now and we're confident we're going to see many great successes in the exam results as in previous years. 

Here's to a great second term!

Happy reading.

Well done to all our students for such hard work in the first term!

Now for a new term...

The race is on!
Staff Parody & Winter Showcase

Following on from the brilliant performances from our students in the winter production of 'War of the Worlds', Mr Cosnett created a parody version for our staff and students to perform during the last week of term. 

You may recognise a few faces in the gallery below taking on some of the roles. 

Many thanks to Mr Cosnett for another brilliant performance and to all of the staff and students who made time for rehearsals during the final busy weeks of term. 

Also, a big thank you to our choir for preparing lots of entertainment and musical delights to get everyone in the festive spirit.
