Bellemoor is an increasingly successful boys’ comprehensive school situated in the pleasant suburb of Shirley, Southampton. It is housed on a small but secure and attractive site near Southampton Common. The school is fairly close to town and there is a good transportation system, both within the city and within the area. The school welcomes boys from all areas of the city.
As a consequence of the Local Authority’s review of secondary education and with the support of parents in the local area Bellemoor will be admitting girls as from September 2008. This is a very exciting time for us and we are actively planning our ‘new’ school, not least is the change of name to The Upper Shirley High School as from September 2008. The wider community and our cluster schools are involved in all of our preparations.
