Bosel was a medieval Bishop of Worcester.

Bosel was consecrated bishop in 680.[1] Around 685, Bosel founded the Royal Grammar School Worcester, which is the oldest school of its type in the United Kingdom.[citation needed] He was also the head of Worcester Cathedral when it was founded.

Bosel resigned the see in 691 and died sometime after that date.[1]
