Brune Park Community School is a secondary school on Military Road, Gosport, Hampshire, England.

History[edit]

The name comes from the Prideaux-Brune family who donated the land on which the school is built to the local education authority for the purpose of establishing a school. The school's crest is based on the Prideaux-Brune coat of arms, and the motto is toujours prêt (always ready).

The school was opened at its current location in 1965, amalgamating the existing Central School with the Grove Boys' and Girls' Secondary Modern Schools.

Its sixth form was removed in 1987, and replaced by the nearby sixth form colleges St Vincent College and Fareham College.

The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) rated the school as 'inadequate' in June 2016.[1] following this report, Ofsted placed the school in special measures, with plans to convert it to an academy in 2017.[2]
