A NEW EXCITING CHAPTER FOR BOURNEMOUTH COLLEGIATE SCHOOL

There are exciting times ahead at Bournemouth Collegiate School with the announcement that we will become part of international education group Bright Scholar Education.

BCS will be Bright Scholar’s first and flagship school in the UK. The new partnership will bring investment, additional expertise and improved outcomes and opportunities for the pupils and staff at the school. 

As Headmaster, I believe this is a wonderful opportunity for BCS. As part of Bright Scholar, we will be able to further develop the already excellent educational opportunities for pupils. As a school, we have enjoyed several years of improving results, a top ‘excellent’ rating from the Independent Schools Inspectorate last year and interest from families that has never been higher. With the backing of Bright Scholar, BCS will therefore be able to build on the outstanding education we currently offer.

In beginning our partnership, we are also thrilled to be working with an architect to further improve our facilities and curriculum provision so that we can help to maximise the potential of every pupil here.

Alex Chen, Vice President at Bright Scholar Education, said of the news: 

“We are very pleased to have found in BCS a school whose aims and ethos resonate strongly with our approach to education at Bright Scholar. With the support and investment this new partnership will bring, we firmly believe that we can work alongside Mr Slatford and his team to add to the recent successes, achievements and growth seen at BCS.”
