Open Evening

Our Open Evening took place on Thursday 16th September, 2021. Thank you to all who attended. You can rewatch the Headmaster's welcome talk here.

Choosing which secondary school is right for your child is a big decision. We warmly invite all prospective students, parents and guardians to join us at our Open Evening on Thursday 16th September from 5.30pm – 8.00pm to find out what is it like to be part of the Cheltenham Bournside School community. Students joining us in September 2022 will be joining in our 50th Anniversary Year, a landmark we are very proud of.

  • Welcome talks from our new Headteacher, Steve Jefferies, at 5.45pm, 6.30pm and 7.15pm
  • School tours led by student guides
  • Meet our expert teachers (& our two school dogs!)
  • Explore our clubs and activities
  • Look ahead to GCSE options – Bournside offers the most extensive variety of subjects available locally
At Bournside, everyone’s contribution and effort is recognised and valued. It is our mission to empower lives through learning every day – through excellent teaching, compassionate pastoral care, and a vast programme of extra-curricular activities.
