Thank you for your interest in Bournville Secondary Provision, staff and students warmly welcome you.

Gaining a Place

If you are interested in gaining a place at the school please contact the school by emailing our Administration Manager: Miss A Mills.

Prospective students and their families are particularly welcome at all times. However, during the first half of the Autumn term the following additional arrangements have been made.

An Open Evening will be held on 18th September 2024. Staff and students will be available to show you around the school and discuss aspects of the life and work of Bournville School, and displays and activities will be presented throughout the evening.

We also offer two Open Mornings shortly after the Open Evening. Should you wish to visit the school on one of these mornings, we would be grateful if you would let us know via e-mail so that sufficient guides can be made available.

Parents, or other interested members of the Community, such as employers, who are unable to attend on the occasions listed above are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school at another, more convenient time.

Y6 to Y7 transition

The transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting time, full of new experiences for both parent and child.  At Bournville, we work very hard to ensure maximum success for all our students so they are ready for the challenges of secondary school, encouraging them to develop new friendships and relish new opportunities secondary school brings.  We also work closely with Y6 teachers to ensure we receive all the required information about our new students so that we have a clear understanding about how to support them best.

We have an array of activities to support our Y6s with their transition.  These include:
