Brune Park Community School

Brune Park Community School is an 11-16 mixed Academy School located in Gosport, Hampshire. Brune Park is a diverse and exciting School, generating a love of learning and enabling the success of our learners and staff. Our aim at Brune Park is that every learner makes better than expected progress, enjoys and engages in a rich, diverse and challenging learning experience.
As part of the King's Group Academies, we work with the initial teacher training (ITT) Team, which dedicates itself to supporting aspiring teachers who are looking to join the profession. The team work in partnership with the Universities of Chichester, Portsmouth and Southampton by hosting placements for those following the University-based PGCE route to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Bay House School & Sixth Form is our School Direct lead school, working in partnership with the University of Winchester and the HISP Teaching School Hub, supporting newly qualified teachers through their Early Career Phase. Brune Park is proud to be a part of this process.

About our school experience


When you arrive at Brune Park you will need to report to the main school reception, where an ID check will take place (against the ID you have sent over electronically (part of our safeguarding procedure). We operate a cashless catering system so please bring lunch and any other refreshments you wish for the day. You will be escorted to the subject area you are visiting for the day and either be introduced to your host or left with the class teacher. You will spend the rest of the day (8.45am-3.10pm) observing or interacting with lessons. Along with your timetable for the day, an optional proforma will be provided to record observations, thoughts and reflections during the lessons. Morning break and lunch break will be spent within the department, where you will have the opportunity to ask questions of subject-specific teachers.
You will be escorted back to the main reception at the end of the day. You will receive a follow up email. Should you wish to arrange any further visits then this can be discussed. We hope you enjoy your visit.
