Bitterne Park School is a large mixed secondary comprehensive school in the Bitterne Park suburb of Southampton, Hampshire, in the south of England.

The school last received an Ofsted inspection on 29 and 30 November 2017, in which it was rated 'Good'.[1]

According to the Department for Education and Skills performance tables, the school obtained the fifth-highest CVA score in the city, with a score of 1039.1, putting the school in the top 25% of schools in England. This is a new, complex Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 contextual value added (CVA) score designed to show the progress children have made. This is done by comparing their achievements with those of other pupils nationally who had the same or similar prior attainment in their test results at age 10 or 11 in 2001.[citation needed]
