At The Bourne Academy we are committed to stretching our most academic students. We appreciate the importance of academic ability and also of nurturing and supporting our most able students with their confidence, motivation and aspirations. We offer a variety of activities to support this including Southampton University sessions, additional mentoring, careers support, trips, employer visits and workshops. We work closely with Canford School to ensure our students get the very best opportunities and all the support they need to achieve.
This year our year 9 group took part in young enterprise programmes and visited J P Morgan and Bournemouth Airport. We are also fortunate to be taking 40 students from year 10 and 12 to Cambridge University for a 2 day residential in May where they will have the opportunity to attend lectures and take part in an application masterclass for the most highly selective universities. Many of our most able students continue to study with us at sixth form and gain places at some of the most prestigious universities and highly competitive higher apprenticeships. We look forward to future Oxbridge applications from the Bourne Academy!
