New status for school

Bennerley Business and Enterprise College has been awarded Leading Practitioner status for their work with gifted and talented pupils.

Mrs Hawkes, acting assistant head, who is responsible for gifted and talented pupils at the college said: “Because we do not achieve the same percentage A*-C grades as other schools it’s easy to assume that pupils are not achieving well.

“But BBEC’s results have been rising steadily for the past four years and significant improvements have been seen in the results of gifted and talented pupils over the last two years.”
