Extra-curricular Activities

“Pupils’ achievement in extra-curricular activities are considerable given the age of the pupils and the size of the school.”

ISI report Nov 2022

At BPS, we encourage the girls to believe, persevere and succeed in all that they do, not only academically, but also in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. This ‘can do’ approach provides our girls with the opportunities to develop their talents, explore new interests and broaden their horizons.

Great emphasis is placed on developing rich and diverse extra-curricular programmes so that pupils can thrive in an environment where all of their abilities and talents are recognised and nurtured. We foster a culture of creativity and innovation and are thrilled that our girls make the most of every day at BPS. Below are examples of what we offer:
