Bibi’s father emigrated to South Africa from India in the 1930’s and Bibi grew up in a country where racism was acceptable. Her experiences then have formed Bibi’s belief that education is the key to changing lives and gives the freedom for every individual to improve their life chances. This belief and passion comes through in every aspect of school life and the opportunities she strives to provide. Pupil voice is central throughout school. Pupils are highly motivated, engaged, show outstanding learning behaviours and they have high aspirations for themselves. This is Bibi’s vision and it is lived out every day as staff and students go about their day. In 2011 she was awarded an OBE for services to Education.
