Congratulations to our 6th form students on your excellent results. A significant number of our students have gained Distinction* grades with the majority of other grades awarded being Distinction. We are tremendously proud of your achievements as they reflect your superb efforts and the high quality teaching at SBHS. We are especially pleased to note the successes of our students in gaining places at universities and on apprenticeships. Thank you for being the best you can be.

GCSE Results

We are immensely proud of our Year 11 students who have made excellent progress in achieving their GCSE grades. Your determination and hard work have certainly paid off. These results reflect the high quality of teachers at SBHS who have inspired your success. Students at all levels have performed well, demonstrating that our students are the best they can be. Congratulations Year 11!

A memorial bench was installed in loving memory of Ifza Bi, a student who sadly is no longer with us but will forever remain in our hearts and thoughts.

With the blessings of Ifza’s family, the bench was installed on grounds near the student entrance, an area chosen as Ifza enjoyed spending social time there. We are grateful to Ifza’s dad and sisters who attended the ceremony. We are extremely proud of the group of students whose initiative and fundraising enabled the purchase of the bench.

A special tribute to Ifza Bi
