Hi there
Please can anyone help? We are planning to move to the Lower Parkstone area from Surrey and have a 13yr old, 3yr old and another one due any day. We are very concerned that all the (state) schools in the Bournemouth/Poole area have very poor ofsted reports compared to where we are now and we really don't want to jeopardise our eldest daughters education. She is very bright so I can see there are two grammar schools she could try to get into but I know there is only a slim chance of her getting a place. We aren't in a position to send her to private school. Does anyone know of any decent state secondary schools in Bournemouth/Poole??

Most people rate Corfe Hills and Twynhams as the best state secondarys in the area. But they are in Broadstone and Christchurch.

Don't think you'll automatically gat into the primary schools in Lower Parkstone. We couldn't get into Courthill even in catchment, or Baden Powell our local middle school.
