Outstanding resources

Our outstanding facilities at Bournside are modern, well cared for and accessible to all. We develop and invest in them with the sole purpose of supporting and challenging our young people to be the best they can be.

The school has an excellent track record of securing investment. In addition to our state-of-the-art English building and maths hub, our learning centre allows our students to work independently and prepare for life beyond school and is open for use by students before, during and after school. This is also the base for our school’s literacy leader, a non-teaching member of staff, whose role is solely to inspire a love of reading amongst our students and support those students who join us in year 7 without the required level of literacy.

Bournside’s sports and drama facilities are the envy of many. With an extensive on-site school field, AstroTurf, two sports halls, a gymnasium, modern fitness suite and purpose-built drama studio, it is little surprise that our sports teams and drama students enjoy success across the county and beyond.

We take great pride in offering healthy and nutritious snacks, meals and drinks. Our purpose-built, two-storey dining centre is open from 8am to 4pm daily. A breakfast, break and lunchtime menu is available online. Sixth form students and staff have access throughout the day, and the main school use the centre before school, during breaks and after school. We use a cashless catering system with all its advantages of speed, security and ease of sharing information.
