Reviews from students:
Bales has been everything I could have hoped for in Year 7. The dynamic approach to education at all ages/levels has aided both my academic and personal development and I will be sad to leave.
Lena: Anthropology at Manchester
I got 3 A* and 7 A in my GCSE examinations, and A*AB at A Level, while studying at Bales. But more than this, I loved the friendly nature of the school and my brilliant subject teachers
Berk: History at Durham
I studied GCSEs and A Levels at Bales, and then went to do History at Kings College London. I loved my time at Bales and would highly recommend Bales to anyone who is serious about their education.
