The individual school Principals, within the group, enjoy considerable freedom to create their own agenda and priorities, whilst working within the overall ethos and educational guidance of the group. While the Principals are wholly responsible for the detailed management of their schools, United Learning is responsible for appointing head teachers, determining group-wide policies, approving budgets and monitoring the performance and progress of individual schools. United Learning is run centrally in Peterborough.

To provide a strong local sense of management and strategy, BCS has a Local Governing Body (LGB) with its own Chair and Governors drawn from across the Bournemouth and Poole communities. The LGB, which oversees both the Preparatory and Senior School, works with the Principal to assess school outcomes (educational and social), set strategic priorities, support school operational and extra-curricular needs, play a front-line role in areas such as Child Protection and Health and Safety, and offer a direct line of contact to pupils and their families. The LGB Chair is a member of The Board, and thus represents the school on its formal governing body.
