Brune Park School is proud to be part of the Gosport and Fareham Multi Academy Trust (GFM). The GFM comprises 5 schools; Bay House School, Gomer Junior School, LWS Academy, Brune Park School and Rowner Junior School. Brune Park School is located in Gosport in the south east county of Hampshire. Gosport is an increasingly popular coastal destination with a strong naval heritage. Gosport benefits from being a stone’s throw from Portsmouth and its many amenities and has excellent transport links. As well as an abundance of picturesque coastal walks and nature reserves on the doorstep, Gosport is home to two parks and accessible to a scenic beach, perfect for outdoors types, runners, cyclists, water sports enthusiasts or families looking for a taste of the great outdoors. Brune Park School is at an exciting stage of development and improvement and the school community is growing prouder, more confident and more successful at every stage. We are proud of each of our students and our commitment and drive is for every young person to achieve beyond their expectation and progress to where they previously had not imagined or thought possible. We have worked very hard to secure the improvements at the school. In our last Ofsted we were graded as ‘good’ for both Leadership and management and Personal Development. Inspectors reported that Brune Park is a friendly and welcoming school where pupils and staff get along well together.
