Early Years, Primary and Secondary
BIST prides itself on its comprehensive extra-curricular activity programme. Activities range from academic subjects such as English, Maths and ICT to sporting activities such as basketball, T Ball, tennis, Golf and football. Other activities include music, choir, taekwondo, Hip Hop, ballet, Chinese and Thai . The activities on offer change each term. Activities are run buy a mix of our own teaching staff and outside agencies. Please note that, where a non-BIST teacher or organisation runs an extra-curricular activity, a charge will be made.
Extra-curricular activities run for ten weeks of each term and children from Nursery onwards are able to attend. (Pre- Nursery students are not allowed to participate in after school activities as it makes their school day too long) . Each term the activities on offer change and we try to have a healthy mix of educational, sporting and fun activities. It is recommended that Nursery children take a maximum of two clubs per week. School buses operate after activities.
All students must take part in three activities per session. Students have the opportunity to live the attributes of our Learner Profile of being determined, showing curiosity, independent, kindness, a risk taker, positive, a team player and reflective.
The school will endeavour to provide an activity programme that includes the following core activities:
8. Tee ball
14. Debating/Public speaking
15. Extra Languages
16. World Scholars Cup
17. Performing Arts
18. Model United Nations
19. International Award
20. Creative Arts
It must be noted that certain activities are only suitable for the senior students or primary students. If there is a school production planned for a term, cast members will be expected to sign up for that activity. It is anticipated that all musicians in the school will participate in the school orchestra and other musical groups throughout the year. Certain activities require students to participate for a specific period of time.
At Bromsgrove, we offer the International Award to Year 10 students. If they choose to take part, they are expected to complete the training and practice expedition for the International award at Bronze level.
The Year 10 and Year 11 residential trips form part of the process. Only students who pass the Year 10 practice stage will graduate to the full bronze award and beyond.
Monday and Friday after school are available for FOBISIA sports teams training sessions.
