Outstanding Resources

Our outstanding facilities at Bournside are modern, well cared for and accessible to all. We develop and invest in them with the sole purpose of supporting and challenging  our young people to be the best they can be.

Our Learning Centre allows our students to work independently and prepare for life beyond school and is open for use by students before, during and after school. We give extensive access to iPads, iPods and innovative multi-functional furniture.

The school has an excellent track record of securing investment. Over the past few years the school has built a new English block with light, airy and dynamic classrooms, which promote outstanding teaching and learning in a vital area of our school curriculum. Due to be completed by September 2018 is a stateof the-art Science Superlab development, which combines the ability for large groups of students to lead practical experiments and engage in more formal written tasks in the same building, with access to university standard equipment.

Bournside’s sports and drama facilities are the envy of many. With an extensive school field, AstroTurf, two sports halls, a gymnasium, modern fitness suite and purpose built drama studio, it is little surprise that our sports teams and drama students enjoy success across the county and beyond.

We take great pride in offering healthy and nutritious snacks, meals and drinks. Our purpose built, two-story Dining Centre is open from 8am–4pm daily. A breakfast, break and lunchtime menu is available online. Sixth form students and staff have access throughout the day, with the main school using the centre before school, during breaks and after school. We use a cashless catering system with all its advantages of speed, security and ease of sharing information.
