Bourne Grammar School has reasons to celebrate early in the academic year.
The school’s Geography department has been recognised by the Geographical Association as a centre of excellence on a national scale. The Secondary Geography Quality Mark recognises student attainment, progress and achievement. Bourne Grammar is one of 46 schools across the country to have been awarded the Quality Mark this year, and is one of just eight to be granted additional Centre of Excellence status.

The school’s Systems and Control and Computing department is also celebrating the success of Harry Kirk, Robert Ward and Sam Lane (pictured, left to right) in passing the Arkwright Scholarship examinations and panel interview to qualify as Arkwright scholars.
The renowned Arkwright Engineering Scholarships aims to identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in Engineering and technical design and receives hundreds of applications from the best and brightest secondary school students.
The Scholarship provides those who are successful with a financial award to enhance their A-level studies and a range of activities to enhance their understanding and experience of engineering.
This is the second year that Bourne Grammar School students have gained scholarships with the programme.
