Why Bickley Park?
A Specialist Boys’ Education
Your son will benefit from a specialist boys’ education which harnesses the natural curiosity and enthusiasm of our boys and ensures full engagement in a curriculum which is designed to stimulate and challenge. Our boys leave us confident and articulate young men, ready to take their place in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.
If you frame education in a way that links to boys’ preferred way of learning and interests, it can significantly impact on their motivation to succeed and progress. The school’s curriculum has at its core the implementation of current research aimed at motivating boys to achieve.
Boys are being out-performed academically by girls from nursery to university and the gap is set to widen. It is believed that by 2025, 70% of graduates attending university in the U.K will be female. Tests conducted in Nursery and Reception classes in the U.K. show girls out-performing boys in all areas. This is a pattern that continues up to, and beyond, GCSE.
Boys are usually competitive by nature and will want to achieve if set suitable, challenging, yet attainable goals. Outcome focused learning can impact positively on boys’ motivation to achieve.
Experts in the field of education regularly visit to talk to staff and parents about how to support boys’ educational journey, often focussing on how boys learn and what motivates them to achieve.
Throughout the school year boys are also inspired by visiting speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds.
At Bickley Park School, boys are actively supported in thinking big and aiming high.
