School Place Planning

We make sure that there are school places for every child in Bournemouth

We have a duty to make sure that there are enough school places available for the children of Bournemouth.

We forecast how many pupils we will have each year so we can develop strategies to make sure that we have the right amount of places in primary and secondary schools. We either make additional school places or to remove them.


As part of the plans to provide additional school places, we have worked with some schools in the borough to increase their yearly intake.

This has led to permanently or temporarily expanding some schools and creating new ones. Below is information about the original proposals provided on some of the schemes which have now been completed.
