The article, written by The Independent’s well respected Education Editor Richard Garner who visited the school in October, features quotes from Block 5s Naveed Khalessi and Bella Anderson as well as Keith Budge,  Peter Coates (Head of Outdoor Work), and David Anson (Head of English) on the format, content and merits of BACs. Read the full article.
