In February 2016 the school successfully completed its sixth OFSTED inspection and was graded OUTSTANDING. On 1st January 2012, we converted to academy status and are now a company limited by guarantee. The school gives high priority to staff development. BHGS holds International School Status and is a Fairtrade School. The school has recently benefited from a total rebuild on the same site.  

We give high priority to staff development and the school's Admissions’ Code gives priority places to children of staff. Staff are able to apply for our Professional Development Award which provides bursary payments to help finance CPD that goes beyond the school’s usual training programme.

Visitors frequently tell us that their first impression of the school is of a friendly, lively and stimulating community where we emphasise the importance of the individual’s contribution and take pleasure in sharing and celebrating achievement.  They commend the good behaviour of the girls and their thirst for knowledge. Bishop’s is a community that offers mutual support and encouragement and expects everyone within it to respect others’ cultures, religion and beliefs.  We hope that the values, self-discipline and sense of personal worth that girls gain here will be a support throughout their lives as British and Global Citizens.

We take safeguarding of our students extremely seriously and an enhanced disclosure will be sought through the Disclosure and Barring Service as part of the school’s pre-employment checks.
