As the eldest of our students here at BBEC, Year 11 are role models to the younger students. On a daily basis in their conduct in lessons and around school Year 11 can be seen embracing the school values of ambition, resilience, courtesy and kindness.

Year 11 are ambitious. They want to do well and succeed in their final exams. They work hard and strive to meet the goals they set themselves. There efforts will be rewarded when they gain the grades they deserve in the summer as a result of their hard work and determination.

Year 11 are resilient. This year more than ever, they have come back from the extended time off, ready to learn and be the best they can be. They ‘give it ago’ and do not stop just because times are hard. They learn from their mistakes and look to improve and better themselves each time.

Year 11 are courteous. They use their manners in and out of lessons and are polite to others around them. They are respectful to staff and to their fellow students.

Year 11 are kind. They look out for one another and take care of others when they need it. They show compassion and understanding for all. They consider the feelings of others and the impact their actions could have.

Excellent attendance is key for all Year 11 students. They must arrive on time each morning (by 8.30am), wearing correct uniform and with full equipment for their day ahead. Punctuality to lessons is important to ensure no valuable learning time is missed.

We are pleased to have ten prefects in Year 11 who have been voted for by their peers. These students represent their year group and form the student voice, working within the departments of Education, Environment, Community, Communication and Health.

If parents have any concerns or questions your first port of call should be to communicate with your child’s form tutor via their planner.

Please check planners at least once per week and sign the weekly page to acknowledge you have seen it. Teachers may contact you through the comments section. You can also check any homework or revision tasks set by your child’s teachers.
