Students are taught examined courses for Key Stage 4 and 5 in almost all subjects. Information about each of the courses taught can be accessed on each subject's page.

All courses taught are under constant review based on changes made by the various exam boards, the success achieved by our students and advice given by external experts in each subject area. The aim is to ensure that our students achieve the highest possible success in each subject area by delivering the most appropriate syllabus for BCHS students.

At the bottom of each subject's page there are email links to the relevant Lead Teacher and Director of Learning who manages the subject within their area of learning. Questions about syllabus delivery and choices are always best directed to the teachers who are responsible on a day to basis for each subject. However questions can also be directed to the headteacher regarding syllabus matters of a more general sense.
