This year is set to be a big year for Bright World’s Partner School, Bethany School.
Former Bethany School Student, Charlie Andrew, is up against Mark Ronson to win 'British Producer of the Year 2016'. Charlie has worked with British Band Alt-J as a producer on both of their albums and with the world famous group Madness, for which he won the Barclaycard Mercury Prize. The former student is also known to have set up the industry favourite 'In the Woods' festival, which showcases up-and-coming musical talent every year.
Thousands of other Bethany School students like Charlie, including film and music directors, photographers, artists, lawyers, entrepreneurs, sports professionals and business owners throughout the world, are part of The Bethany Network. If you would like to apply to this school, please complete our online enquiry form.
Bright World and Bethany School will be rooting for Charlie on Wednesday 24th February, when the 'BRITS' will be aired on ITV. You can watch a video of Charlie at work on Bethany School’s new website.
This year will also mark the 150th anniversary of Bethany school. Celebrations will be in full swing on the 2nd July 2016, when the school will host its Celebratory Ball. Half of the tickets have already been sold, so if you know any students that would like to come, do contact the school soon to secure a place. The committee are seeking prizes for the auction and will be thanking donors and sponsors in their marketing materials and programme for the evening. All proceeds for the event will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital and the school’s South African Project.
"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
There were scenes of jubilation yesterday as many Bright World partner schools achieved excellent results, on the day that all UK boarding school pupils collected their A-Level results. Below are just some of the many updates we received. Congratulations everyone!
