School of Distinction Award

School of Distinction Award
We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the Trinity Access Programme's School of Distinction Community Award!
The Trinity Access Programme (TAP) is embedded in our culture in BCS. This ‘Schools of Distinction Award’ aims to recognise and showcase the efforts of BCS to transform our school culture and to develop innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The scheme also recognises the often extraordinary work being successfully undertaken by schools in challenging conditions and with limited resources. This is achieved through the implementation of the three core practices of TAP - Pathways to College, Mentoring and Leadership in Learning. We have used our own school and community resources, and the resources of the Trinity Access project in Trinity College Dublin to support educational innovation and change.
Judges were "greatly impressed" with our success in the following areas:
✅ Joining the TAP Community of Practice
✅ Engaging in a process of evaluating and identifying the needs of our students and teachers through the TAP School Survey
✅ Setting relevant targets to address these needs and action student centred programmes with the aim of embedding a college-going culture in our school
✅ Engaging in the TAP 3 core practices of Pathways to College, Mentoring and Leadership in Learning and have plans to expand these programmes in the future
