Graham Wilson, Headteacher of Bitterne Park School

Welcome to Bitterne Park

A very warm welcome to Bitterne Park School and Sixth Form College!

Bitterne Park School provides an excellent education for 11-19 year olds, set within the Bitterne Park Community.   Our core values of Community; Achievement; Respect; Relationships and Enjoyment permeate all that we aspire to be.   This vibrant and positive approach is tangible in our brand new, state of the art school.  On behalf of everyone at Bitterne Park School we invite you to visit us to find out more and thank you for taking the time to have already looked at our website.   Do not hesitate to contact us with any queries.

We are a large community school with a strong tradition of academic achievement.   We are passionate about developing the whole person, hence we have a balanced curriculum and a strong programme of extra-curricular activity which challenges our students to develop all areas of their potential.

As a “Good” school we work very hard to maintain our high standards.

As the new Headteacher I look forward to working with you as I believe the partnership of all of us (parents, governors, students and staff) is vital to our future success.

Susan Trigger, Executive Headteacher for the Riverside Federation

I am delighted to introduce myself as the Executive Headteacher of The Riverside Federation and a National Leader for Education based within our Teaching School.  Our expanding group of schools is based on a passion for Teaching and Learning leading to successful outcomes.   This creates an environment in our schools for happy and thriving young people with “Outstanding Leadership”, at all levels, being crucial to this success.

The Bitterne Park Teaching School is now a proven and experienced team of experts.   We specialise in school-to-school support, rapid school improvement and the training and development of trainee and experienced teachers.   Please do get in touch to find out what we can do for you and with you via our Teaching Alliance team.

The move into our new school building means that it was the right time to move on from 20 years of Headship at “BPS1”.    I am very excited at the opportunities that now present themselves in “BPS2” with a new management structure fit for a school of up to 2,000 students!

I look forward to working with Graham Wilson, who returns as the Headteacher of Bitterne Park School and Sixth Form, building an exciting new future for the school community in the years ahead.



Executive Headteacher for the Riverside Federation



We are proud to announce that BPS2 is finished ready for the forthcoming term – welcoming in the new Year 7s for their first day on Friday 8th September. Staff and the BPS site team have been working busily over the last week to organise the classrooms ready for students to arrive over the next five days.

We have the addition of exciting new ICT equipment, bigger, brighter classrooms and new learning spaces for students including the balcony sponsored by Southampton Airport. We can’t wait to welcome back the BPS community to their new school.
