What the school offers its staff

People are at the heart of Bournside. Rating us as “Good” in all areas, OFSTED saw that “staff well-being, as well as curriculum knowledge, are paramount”. Our staff and students are Ambitious, Purposeful, Proud, Respectful, Curious, and Supportive. These are our values and whilst you’ll see them written on our website and on our corridor walls, where you’ll really see them is in the way we work together, the way we talk to one another, the way teachers teach and students learn. All that leads to what OFSTED called “a harmonious school”.

Bournside is a large school with over 200 staff and over 1,800 students. That means we have the resources to provide a wealth of opportunities: a sports centre and 4G sports pitches; a fully equipped Drama studio, a large library, specialised English and Maths blocks, 12 science labs and specialist design, technology, computing and media rooms. Our highly successful sixth formers have their own large base with numerous study rooms

Commitment to safeguarding

We are an equal opportunities employer and value and respect diversity across our whole school community. Bournside is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
