It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.

NCBIS is dedicated to preparing students for their next stage of life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.
