About Us

A Grammar School existed in Bourne as early as the 14th century.  The present Grammar School, however, 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 enjoys an enviable academic reputation and admits students from a wide area.  

Bourne Grammar is a mixed selective School which achieved Academy Status on 1 January 2012.  In the last decade the school has expanded rapidly and there are now 1118 students on roll including some 285 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.

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.

We seek to provide an ethos which encourages in our students an attitude of hard work and consideration for others.  It is our intention that our former students will reflect on their time at the School as being intellectually stimulating, and personally challenging and rewarding. 

We believe that education is about much more than the academic curriculum, being enhanced by the many extra-curricular activities on offer.  These may be sporting, musical dramatic or through involvement with a club or society. 

In addition, trips and visits to concerts, plays, art galleries and other events and places are offered, both in this country and abroad. 

We hope there will be much, in addition to the basic curriculum, to which each of our students will wish to make a contribution.
