 From the Founder’s Desk

As we finish off the year at BSI, it is satisfying to look back at the many achievements our students have made, and the universal growth we have seen and played our part in. A big thank you to my staff, who have gone above and beyond, and continue to strive to improve what we do and how we do it. I wish all our friends and followers around the world a healthy, restful and peaceful festive period. We’ll be back with our newsletters in January.

 Staff Spotlight and Value

The true character of any organisation lies in its ethos and values, and more so the genuine implementation of these values in its daily operations, activities, and interactions. Balderstone Sports Institute has five value pillars:

1. Commitment
2. Excellence
3. Continual Growth
4. Positive Energy
5. Family

Over the next few months, we’ll be hearing from key staff members on how these values are incorporated into their everyday work, guide the culture at BSI, and how they relate to the sporting field and life.
