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

History and operations[edit]

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

It has offered a sixth-form facility alongside the standard secondary facility but this was removed in 1987 with the sixth-form facilities being provided by St Vincent College and Fareham College.

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 crest is based on the Prideaux-Brune coat-of-arms, and the motto is toujours prêt (always ready).
