Welcome to Bournemouth Collegiate School

BCS recognises that academic success is vitally important in education and is a central component to the opportunities our pupils enjoy once they leave the School. Universities and employers increasingly demand a wide range of skills and experiences, and BCS now has a greater responsibility more than ever to focus on the overall development of their pupils.

At BCS we pride ourselves on our ability to ‘add value’ to each pupil’s education from 3 years old all the way up to A’ level. Individual needs are catered for across all age groups, and boys and girls of differing abilities and interests flourish in our school environment. We provide a broad curriculum that equips pupils for the next stage in their development.

This added-value also extends to the significant number of co-curricular opportunities offered to pupils, which help to instil and develop the skills we want our sons and daughters to have as they grow up. Consequently, BCS pupils leave the School as well-balanced, versatile and confident young people.


Our admissions policy aims to identify pupils with a variety of talents, who have the potential and attitude to make the most of the many opportunities we offer them.

We encourage pupils to try new things and to make mistakes, to be creative and to work outside of their comfort zone. We want to inspire each pupil to make the most of the talents they have. This way the pupils at BCS, of any age, grow in self-esteem, develop resilience, have a sense of adventure and are equipped to face all the challenges of growing up into young adults.

I hope that you find the information on the website useful, but nothing beats coming in to visit us. Please contact our Registrar to arrange a time to visit and I look forward to meeting you then.
