A statement which has never rang more true – and as we emerge from the last 18 months of uncertainty, the importance of our Bournemouth Collegiate School (BCS) motto is undeniable.
Whilst the pandemic bought with it many challenges, the commitment of staff and resilience of pupils means we have so much to be proud of.
The ongoing investment throughout this time into individual technology, educational facilities, enrichment opportunities, and pastoral care means that BCS will continue to grow, develop and thrive over the following months and years.
Only recently we were shortlisted for Co-educational School of the Year in the national Independent School Awards, an accolade we’re immensely proud of, which truly shows how far the school has come in the last 18 months.
But why should you consider BCS as the right school for your son or daughter?
There are many reasons – not least the exceptional academic results, with value-added at GCSE and A Level considered some of the best in the country. We achieve this by using having small classes, (averaging 14 at GCSE and six at A Level) and an almost unlimited supply of extra support, plus, the co-curricular programme is second to none in the breadth and depth it offers.
Add to this the intimate and nurturing environment, presence of strong relationships, and focus on honesty, kindness and integrity, we strive to bring the best out in everyone; supporting pupils in maximising and realising their individual potential, both academically and personally.
Our excellent results open doors and provide brilliant opportunities – over 95% of students have secured a place in their first-choice universities – but the outstanding education at BCS is also holistic at its heart. We believe every young person should be equipped with the character and skills they need to make the most of their abilities. Above all else, BSC is a happy school where we value, respect and fully support every pupil, as they undertake their journey onto adulthood.
We are well connected too – our minibus network covers everywhere from Sandbanks to Wimborne, Westbourne to Verwood and many other key locations in the Dorset area; plus, we have recently introduced a brand-new route covering the New Forest – notably Lyndhurst, Burley, Bransgore, Winkton and Christchurch.
As we look forward to the start of next academic year, interest in the school has never been higher – places in many year groups are already limited, so please do get in touch with Kelly Rumbelow in our Admissions team to find out more.
