Our 5 expectations of Year 7 students
All about Uniform
At Bournside we expect the highest standards from our students, starting with their personal presentation. Our uniform gives our school its identity and we expect our students to wear it with pride at all times. To maintain these standards, the Uniform and Equipment Guidance outlines our expectations to ensure that our students feel part of our community, are ready to learn, and make the best impression to everyone they meet.
Our House system
We have high expectations for learning and for behaviour. We want you to try your hardest in lessons and we’ll reward you through our house points system for outstanding attitude to learning, as well as great attendance, joining in, supporting others, and your achievements in and outside of school. In your daily tutor sessions you’ll be with fellow house members from other year groups so you will soon feel part of our school community. On joining us, you will be presented with your school tie which will represent your house.
We aim to unlock a love of reading in every Bournside student. We have a fantastic library to enhance your enjoyment of reading and level of literacy. From classic fiction to thrilling sci-fi, there’s a book on our shelves for you!
