About Bohunt School Worthing

Bohunt School Worthing (BSW) is a purpose built, modern and innovative school opened in September 2015 to Year 7 and 8, and has grown into a vibrant and successful 11-16 comprehensive at the heart of its community where all students and staff genuinely enjoy, respect and achieve.

In September 2016 we moved into new state-of-the-art buildings. These specialist facilities and resources include dynamic learning environments, a school wide iPad scheme, the Mandarin excellence programme, outdoor education opportunities and state of the art equipment in all curriculum areas. All of which contribute towards further transforming learning for teachers and students.

Our vision is very much driven by the desire to ‘do the right thing’ for individuals, groups and the community. This means as a school we most definitely are not an exam factory driven solely by external measures. We value all forms of feedback and were delighted with our first ever Ofsted report in September 2018 report which we felt strongly captured our culture and ethos. The school received a glowing Ofsted report praising the leadership, student progress and culture of high expectations championed at the School. The inspectors also recognised the overwhelming support of leaders from parents and carers. The school’s work to promote students’ personal development and welfare was judged “outstanding”, and noted how students feel safe and well cared for whilst at school praising the positive culture surrounding the school, including staff feeling proud, valued and “committed to making sure that all students do well”.

Bohunt School Worthing is based in a central location in Worthing; a coastal town on the South Coast in West Sussex. With easy access to the A27; centrally between Chichester and Brighton, and also the A24 and the A23. We are well served by public transport, with a train station within walking distance and a bus route on our doorstep.
