Show all relevant working in your responses. Welcome to BODMAS International SchoolDear Parents and Guardians, Thank you for picking up the new 2016 brochure and your interest in our school. Feel free to visit us, in person or online. In the meantime, here are some key facts and figures that should whet your appetite! BODMAS International School educates boys and girls aged 11 to 18. We opened in 1982 with just 56 students, and have now grown to accommodate a roll of 950 pupils, with 38 nationalities represented. Currently 450 students are enrolled in the boarding section of the school, though we can accommodate 510 in our purpose-built boarding houses. We are ideally located just 48km from London Heathrow Airport with a shuttle-bus available that makes the journey in just 40-50 minutes. Our extensive campus grounds cover 12.8 hectares, giving us enough space for 3 full-size soccer pitches, an astroturf hockey pitch and a general-purpose recreational area. Our Sports Hall boasts a 6-lane 25m swimming pool, basketball and netball courts and a fitness area. Our teaching blocks are purpose-built and feature 6 science labs, two ICT suites and an auditorium that seats 460. The school day starts at 0800 with a short registration/tutorial period, followed by seven 55-minute periods, interspersed with various breaks for snacks and lunch. © 2017 27539 Page 1 of 3
