Message from the Headteacher

I offer you a warm welcome to our school.

At Bournside we aim for every student to develop the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to become the best they can be. We strive to secure the highest standards of achievement for all our students and pride ourselves on knowing and understanding every individual. We describe ourselves as being purposeful, proud, respectful, curious and supportive. These are not simply five words, they are our core values and underpin everything that we do.
