Bournemouth School is a selective Grammar school for boys with over 1,000 students, including around 300 in the sixth form. It is located to the north east of this famous resort town on a site which is adjacent to its sister school, Bournemouth School for Girls. Bournemouth School began life in 1901 in new buildings in another part of the town but moved to its present site on East Way in 1939.

The school offers a wide range of facilities, from its extensive computer network to its well-resourced library. A modern art and technology block provides excellent workshops, art studios and computer rooms. New sports facilities, opened in 1999, provide an eight badminton court sports hall, a well-equipped health and fitness suite and a full-size floodlit all-weather pitch.

The school acquired specialist Language College status in September 2000. Languages offered, both to pupils and the community at large, include French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Arabic. A wide range of opportunities are available for pupils to extend their language skills, including a broad and long-established exchange programme.

Bournemouth School boasts an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. It is one of a small number of state schools which has a Combined Cadet Force (CCF) contingent. We also have our own R.N.-sponsored Scout troop, which is only open to members of the school. Sport is a strength, with representative teams competing regularly at all age-groups in the main sports. Many pupils also take an active part in the musical life of the school, which offers a wide range of ensembles from gamelan to classical to jazz, with numerous rock groups always keen to perform.

For further details about a specific subject taught at the School, please look under Departments.

Please note that this site is under development, and so some links may not yet be active. We are constantly working on and improving our web pages, so please check back regularly!


Our Vision is one of a caring, happy, vibrant school with a strong sense of community and pride in performance. It is one in which each pupil is challenged and stimulated in a broad range of contexts and in which each member of the staff feels fulfilled.



To enable all members of the School to achieve their full potential by the provision of appropriate high quality teaching, resources and training.
