Board of Governors – Attendance 2020-21




Bourne Community College has had some brand-new diverse art graphics installed across the school, linking to different curriculum areas. - all of which have been welcomed by staff and students alike.
We were immensely proud to hold a celebration for our 2020 Cohort of students who left us during the height of the pandemic in March 2020. We were delighted to see them at the Langstone Harbour Hotel. It was a wonderful evening and a delight to catch up with the students.
