Year 13 students have been testing their survival skills these past few weeks. In order to prepare for independent living at university, the students take it in turns to spend a week in a house at school.

To survive, they have to do all their own shopping and therefore have to manage their money. They learn to cook simple healthy meals and even invite the odd teacher for a sit down dinner.

We think our BISA students are well prepared to take on the world by the time they leave. Well. Put it this way, they aren't going to go hungry!
