Alumni

Welcome Back!

It is always a pleasure for us to hear about your life experiences since leaving Bournside and we love keeping in touch! We take every opportunity to celebrate our students’ successes which are rich and varied, and we have a track record of supporting students in their successful applications for Russell Group universities, including Oxbridge. But being a Bournside student is about so much more than academic achievement. We are proud to know and understand every individual and through our inclusive environment, Bournside students thrive in a wide range of additional extra-curricular opportunities, both during their time with us and beyond.

The Bournside Alumni is an opportunity for you to give something back to our school community. Perhaps you could talk to some of our current students about your work experiences, or even be featured on this page! Maybe you could support us with funding, or help us with work experience placements for our students. Either way, we would be delighted to hear from you. And of course, our door is always open if you need our support such as advice from one of our specialist subject teachers, or guidance from our Careers Team.

We’d love to know what you are doing now, and how Bournside equipped you for life’s challenges so please get in touch with your story: alumni@bournside.gloucs.sch.uk. We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Alumni Success Stories


Aled


I really enjoyed the friendly community atmosphere at Bournside and thanks to the support and opportunities whilst I was there, I am studying LLB Law at the University of Nottingham. My ambition is to work at a leading international law firm after graduating so I have secured places on a number of workshops and schemes at some of the world’s leading firms to help me achieve this.

I loved my 7 years at Bournside! I made many friends along the way, some of which I am still in contact with now. Bournside is full of incredible teachers that inspired and motivated me to reach my full potential. I graduated from university with a 2:1 in Human Geography, and am now the Distribution Manager for Honeywell Scanning and Mobility in the UK and Ireland.

Bournside offered me an exceptional start, giving me the chance to travel the world and helping me develop into an ambitious young professional. I am now a proud Cardiff University Alumna with a First Class degree in Biomedical Sciences. I was also a Biomedical Society Committee Member and Captain of the University Tennis Team. I hope to start up my own business in the future and become a role model.

I owe a lot to Bournside. I was not the best-behaved student but the teachers noticed my potential and turned my school years around. I am currently serving as a Lieutenant in the British Army, in the Royal Logistic Corps. I have worked in Dubai, France, Lithuania, Poland, and Latvia, and played rugby in both Cyprus and America for Sandhurst and for the Royal Logistic Corps team.
