Ofsted last visited Bournemouth School in September 2011. The resulting report can be accessed here.

Examination results

Our results at both A-Level and GCSE reflect the hard work and commitment of our students. Our results are consistently above the national average.

Almost all of our GCSE students go on to study in our Sixth Form, with 80%  then progressing to university. Over the last 4 years, 300 students have left us to study at Russell Group Universities, and 53 students have left us to study at Oxford or Cambridge or to study medicine, veterinary science or dentistry.  Increasingly, students are embarking upon degree apprenticeships, rather than going to university.  Students have secured these at Dyson, Jaguar Land Rover, Lloyds Bank, Barclays, Grant Thornton, JP Morgan, Deloitte, Saffrey Champness, and Mazars.
