Reviews from students:
My confidence really developed at Bales. I ended up getting A*AAB. The support I got from all the staff and teachers was fantastic, and I achieved my dream of studying Medicine at UCL!
Mohammed: Medicine at UCL
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.
