Executive Principal’s Blog – 5.7.19: ‘Diving Deeper at BMS!

Besides looking inward, always having that mindset to ask the key questions ‘what’s working well?’ and ‘even better if?’ making sure we are constantly listening to all the important stakeholders associated with our great school, as a school community we are also very outward facing. Sharing our superb practice and having that growth mindset to learn from the very best practice in schools up and down the country is part of our DNA!

Having links with the very best schools in the country and being part of national networks including the ‘By Leaders for Leaders’ national organisation enables us to make those all-important connections. Today we were privileged to welcome a number of very senior school leaders from schools all around the South East region to a ‘BL4L Dive Deeper Day’ mini conference at our school.

The theme of the conference was ‘Systems and
Structures to Secure Effective School Improvement’

and there was a real focus on teaching and learning, maximising achievement and developing leadership capacity across the learning community.


The feedback received was extremely positive and reminded us of the superb place that our school is in; great credit to all our hard working staff, governors and trustees, talented and dedicated students and wholly supportive parents and carers.

The conference was held after our inspiring annual Rewards Evening which took place on Thursday evening when we reflected back and celebrated, not only the whole school’s exceptional achievements, but also the superb individual achievements of so many of our great students. It was a real ‘moment in time’ and one that our distinguished guest speaker Oliver James Dowden CBE MP  was very impacted by, clearly impressed with the outstanding journey that our wonderful school has been on in recent years .
