Avonbourne School is an 11 – 16 girls school in Bournemouth, comprising of approximately 1100 students. It is an International Business and Enterprise Trust and as such has a distinct ethos focusing on the international dimension, global citizenship and preparing students for the world of work in an ever globalised economy. These important themes permeate the school at alll levels; within the curriculum where all departments have international links and collaborative projects underway, pastorally, where all assemblies follow citizenship and sustainability themes and beyond the curriculum and in the community with events including regular video conferencing with international link schools, hosting visits (and visitors) from these schools, visiting local primary and other secondary schools and running conferences for businesses and community groups. The recent work with the Earth Charter supports the school’s aims and ethos well. Avonbourne is a unique, inspiring and caring place to learn where we develop students as aspirational and enterprising life-long learners. They leave us as active and responsible 21st century global citizens.

Avonbourne holds the International Schools Award as well as the Cultural Diversity Quality Standard (gold).
