I hope you have all had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas break and have all managed to stay safe and well. A Happy New Year to you all!

Information about reopening in January
Dear Parents / Carers and students
I didn’t expect that I would be writing to you so soon after my last letter, but needs must. As you may know there were several government announcements only yesterday about the return to school in January and the testing of staff and students in school. This letter outlines the implications for students at BBEC as far as we understand them at the moment. We have been given so little notice about this and so I ask for your understanding as we try to work through this together.
End of term
As we come to the end of a very strange and challenging term we are all taking time to reflect on the highs and lows of school during a pandemic. Our focus this term has been on keeping students and staff safe and healthy whilst also continuing to improve BBEC for all. Students have responded very well to being in bubbles; we are so proud of the strength of character and adaptability they have shown.
