Bohunt has achieved greatly in the subject of science - reaching a recent peak in organisational standards in 2014.

Bohunt was designated a Language College, which means that it specialises in modern foreign languages and all pupils take at least one GCSE.All the subjects are taken at BTEC's. Bohunt offers Spanish, German, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin. In 2005 Bohunt was credited with an International School Award.[4]

These are Liss Junior School, Liphook Church of England (controlled) Junior School, Greatham Primary School and Grayshott Primary School.
