Livingstone Academy Bournemouth will be located in the Lansdowne area of Bournemouth very close to the main bus and train transport routes allowing access to students from all over the area.

The Aspirations Academies Trust is consulting with a range of stakeholders. The consultation on the proposed new academy asks the key question: ‘Do you think that The Aspirations Academies Trust should enter into a Funding Agreement with the Secretary of State and that the Livingstone Academy Bournemouth should open?’

The new school will serve all of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, initially providing places 60 places for Reception and 150 places for Year 7. A sixth form provision for 100 students will open in the near future. The school will eventually hold 1,370 pupils age 4 to 18. 

There is no catchment for the academy with admissions being primarily based on distance. The College is inclusive and co-educational, with admissions for students of all ability, regardless of faith or other characteristic.
