I received very positive feedback from our former pupils on their progress at secondary school; this shows that we really indeed start them off on the right path. Teachers’ commitment to the Bethany vision has significantly improved. It is very encouraging to see teachers bonding and sharing a sense of belonging to the Bethany school team. It is very encouraging to see some pupils who were below average last term climbing up the ladder and achieving good grades. Teachers are fantastic at what they are doing in the class; this can be seen in the reports and pupils progress. I have also included some of the teacher’s reports, I am very sure you will find these really interesting.  For the full report please click here
Latest news - Our standard 7 children have just received their results: Of the 19 children in std. 7, 4 got an average of Grade A and 15 got grade B.
