Welcome to Cheltenham Bournside School

As Headteacher, it is my privilege to lead the school and extend a warm welcome to our students, their parents, and our many friends in the local community. We are ‘empowering lives through learning’ every day and in every way – through excellent teaching, compassionate pastoral care, and a programme of extra-curricular activities which is second to none.

Our school crest contains our historic motto: ‘usque ad finem’. It means ‘until the end’. It means we’ll be with you every step of the way. And it means to go to the utmost extreme in pursuit of excellence: to give your all, to travel as far as can be travelled, to do as much as can be done. That’s what we promise for our learners. That’s what we expect from each member of our community. That’s what it means to be part of Cheltenham Bournside School: the pursuit of utmost excellence every step of the way.
