  • Pupils 2 Parliament

    Published 02/12/22

    BHBS has continued to participate in Pupils 2 Parliament, ably led by Dr Roger Morgan OBE. P2P offers students the opportunity to start to get involved in decision-making in Westminster. We have contributed towards debates as diverse as Artificial Intelligence, maritime shipping laws and protecting endangered species. This term we have participated in a rapid response survey about participation in sports and got mentioned in Parliament!

    The parliamentary debate was introduced by Munira Wilson MP, who thanked the pupils who “sent in their views for this debate as part of the Pupils 2 Parliament programme”.

    And BHBS was again named in Parliament – the Hansard record for the Westminster Hall debate on Wednesday 9th November reads:

    “I also want to thank all the students from the Bishop of Hereford’s Bluecoat School for participating in the process and feeding back to this debate”

    Two of the BHBS students who did that survey were then directly quoted in Parliament, and their words are now recorded for all time in the Hansard record of the proceedings of the UK Parliament.  The two students’ quotes used in Parliament are:

    “Let girls participate in all sports at school”


    “I want to do the same sports as the boys – if we dance, so should they.  And if they get rugby, so should we”.

     We look forward to the next debate! For details of how to get involved, please contact Mr Merrick.

  • Onatti Productions

    Published 29/11/22

    Students and staff had an excellent time last Monday as actors from the Onatti Theatre Company presented 'la Maison Hantée' to us in the Main Hall.

    Zoé and Antoine, lost and getting wet in the storm, enter a house which they find, that seems to be unoccupied.

    With a visit from the police, an escaped prisoner, a ghost and a couple of Bishops students called to the stage to lend a hand, their antics kept us laughing (or crying with laughter, in Mr Collingbourne's case) as they worked out where the noises were coming from, who exactly was in the house and they even apprehended the escaped criminal.

  • Toby chosen as banner bearer

    Published 29/11/22

    Year 9 student Toby was chosen as the banner bearer for the remembrance service in Hereford earlier this month. He did a fantastic job along with all of the Air Cadets squadron.

    Toby has been working really hard during his time at the Air Cadets and been taking part in exciting challenges such as flying a motorised glider. He was also made Corporal within a year.

    Well done Toby!

  • KS4 Basketball Victory

    Published 29/11/22

    BHBS KS4 boys basketball team travelled to Gloucester recently to face Gloucester Saxons u16s.

    The Saxons play in the national basketball league.

    As a development fixture for Bishops it was meant to be a tough test for our boys. We were expecting a heavy defeat. Saxons were weakened through injury.

    In the end, scoring from captain Will and Bodhi, strong rebounding from Henry, Jacob and Onur and pressure defence from Johnnie and Harley lead to a shocking but comfortable 15 point win for Bishops.

    Huge thanks to Gloucester Saxons for hosting us and we wish them good luck for the rest of the season.
