Educating young people is a great responsibility and privilege. Bloomfield Collegiate School is proud to provide our pupils with opportunities to think independently, engage in teamwork and develop their creativity and resilience.
The School curriculum is designed to provide the broadest possible choice of subjects and, from the very start of their school career, we offer traditional academic pathways while also making sure the girls have the best chance to discover and advance their own passions in a variety of disciplines. We believe that through learning and the celebration of success, all our pupils can fulfil their potential and begin to shape their future.
Their dedication and diligence is clear in our examination results. The impressive 94% A*-C GCSE pass rate is a testament to the hard work and dedication from both students and staff throughout this and previous years.
We are also delighted to once again be celebrating our excellent A Level results. Over two thirds of grades awarded were A*-B, enabling our pupils access to the very best Universities and their first-choice courses. Behind the headline figures, there are stories of girls who have exceeded their own expectations and, of course, some exceptional individual performances.
One of our undoubted strengths underpinning these results is our pastoral care provision. Through the Heads of Year, form tutors, a well-developed mentoring programme lead by senior students, a traditional house system, School Council and a close working relationship between the academic and pastoral structures in the school, we strive to create the personalised care, guidance and support every girl needs to achieve their ambitions.
An extensive programme of extracurricular activities takes place throughout Bloomfield. Competitive sport and dance teams, music, drama, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Young Enterprise, Combined Cadets Force, and our Scripture Union are part of daily life in the school.
Encouraging young people to explore a wide variety of opportunities will equip them with the skills, confidence and aspirations to broaden their horizons and develop their independence.
This combination of an effective traditional curriculum, tailored to the needs of all students, carefully focused support and an extensive range of enrichment activities enables us to deliver our key aim: “Excellence in a Caring Community”. We are proud to see our pupils leave Bloomfield as articulate, confident and resourceful young people, ready to embrace the future with enthusiasm and to make their impact upon Northern Ireland and beyond.
