Alumni

We value keeping in touch with former students through our alumni.

We live in a world where keeping in touch has never been easier, we have been developing links with former students through our alumni.  It is always a pleasure to hear from and speak with, past students about their experiences after leaving Bournside and hopes for the future.

We take every opportunity to celebrate the school's success, which is rich and varied.  Levels of student achievement are very high and in 2015 almost half the A-Level grades achieved were either an A*, A or B and the school has a track record of supporting students in their successful applications for Russell Group universities, including Oxbridge. 

However, as I'm sure past students would testify, being a student at Bournside is about so much more than simply academic achievement.  Bournside is a very special place where we are proud to know and understand every individual and through this inclusive environment, students thrive in a wide range of additional extra-curricular opportunities, both on-site and beyond.

The Bournside Alumni is an opportunity for past students to give something back to the school. We'd love to know what you are doing now, and how Bournside equipped you for the challenges of later life. 

Working in the education profession and in particular in a school, one of the most rewarding aspects is to hear about past students who have left the school and experienced success in their chosen pathway. 

Please do get in touch to let us know your story and how we can contact you. To do this, please email: alumni@bournside.gloucs.sch.uk

We look forward to hearing from you.

Alumni success stories

Aled (2009-2016)

Thanks to the support and opportunities provided to me at Bournside, I am studying LLB Law at the University of Nottingham. I enjoyed the school’s friendly community atmosphere. My ambition is to work at a leading international law firm after graduating. I have secured places on a number of workshops and schemes at some of the world’s leading firms to achieve this.

Erin (2003-2010)

I loved my 7 years at Bournside; I made many friends along the way, some of which I am still in contact with now. Bournside is full of incredible teachers that inspired and motivated me to reach my full potential. I graduated from university with a 2:1 in Human Geography, and am now the Distribution Manager for Honeywell Scanning and Mobility in the UK and Ireland.

Sophie (2005 - 2012)

Bournside offered me an exceptional start, giving me the chance to travel the world and helping me develop into an ambitious young professional. I am now a proud Cardiff University Alumna with a First Class BSc Honours degree in Biomedical Sciences. I was a Biomedical Society Committee Member and Captain of the University Tennis Team. I hope to start up my own business and become a role model.

Andy (1999 - 2006)

I owe a lot to Bournside. I was not the best behaved student but the teachers noticed my potential and turned my school years around. I am currently serving as a Lieutenant in the British Army, in the Royal Logistic Corps. I have worked in Dubai, France, Lithuania, Poland, Latvia and played rugby in both Cyprus and America for Sandhurst and for the Royal Logistic Corps team.
