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
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.
