About Cheltenham Bournside School and Sixth Form Centre

Bournside is the largest comprehensive 11-18 school in Gloucestershire. We are an established single academy trust with a good reputation (Ofsted ‘Good’ rating 2016), wide catchment, and a strong presence in the community. Our school is consistently oversubscribed with a PAN of 300, and most of our students choose to stay with us for their post-16 study.

One of things that makes Bournside so special is the shared vision that exists between staff, students, parents and Governors. It is visible the minute you enter Reception and permeates throughout the school. It is not just a series of words; but a sound piece to many conversations that take place daily within the school. It’s simple: we empower lives through learning.

We do this by living our 5 core values which underpin our work together and form the basis of my leadership of the school. We are: Purposeful, Proud, Respectful, Curious, Supportive.

A wealth of information about our school can be found on our website and specifically, the vacancies section contains a range of useful materials that you may find helpful, such as ‘why work at bournside?’, ‘meet the headteacher’, ‘what our new staff say’, case studies documenting the school’s support for professional development and a collection of short video clips.

Alternatively our candidate information pack includes more information about the school.
