About the School

A Grammar School has existed in Bourne as early as the 14th century. The present-day Bourne Grammar School originated from the bequest of William Trollope and was founded in 1636.

The School moved to its present site in 1921 and occupies a pleasant site to the south of the Lincolnshire market town of Bourne. It has an enviable academic reputation and admits students from the surrounding area including Stamford, Peterborough, the Deepings and Spalding.

Bourne Grammar is a mixed selective School with a large Sixth Form offering academic A-Levels. The School is rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted and became an Academy on 1 January 2012. In the last decade the School has expanded rapidly and there are now over 1600 students on roll, including over 400 in the Sixth Form.

This growth in student numbers has been matched by the development of the site: recent years have seen the opening of a number of impressive, well-appointed buildings including a new £4million Science Block consisting of 15 state-of-the-art laboratories for the teaching of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Further development of the estate is planned.

The School attaches great importance to the pursuit of academic excellence. It has a tradition of hard work, respect for achievement and sound discipline. Public examination results, at all levels, are outstanding.

The school seeks to provide an ethos which encourages students to have a positive attitude of hard work and consideration for others. The school hopes that former students will reflect on their time at the School as being intellectually stimulating, personally challenging, and rewarding.

Bourne Grammar School believe that education is about much more than just the academic curriculum and this is enhanced by the many extra-curricular activities on offer in the areas of sport, music. drama. dance and art. There are also many different clubs and societies run at lunch and after school.
In addition, trips and visits to concerts, plays, art galleries and other events and places are offered, both in this country and abroad.

The school hope to produce adults who are well qualified, well rounded, well prepared for the future.
