Burford School

Summer ConcertA cause for celebration
The government’s validated league tables published at the end of January confirmed that Burford is the best state school sixth form in West Oxfordshire and the third best in all of Oxfordshire. Furthermore, the high level of progress achieved between GCSE and A-level, means that we retain our place yet again in the top 25% of schools nationally.

Sponsorship from the local community
As costs continue to rise, we are always extremely grateful to those who come forward to offer us their support. Sponsorship enables us to provide our students with the additional things that make a great education an exceptional experience – professional lighting for a drama performance, an illustrated programme for an art show, team kit for a sport etc. Burford garden Company and Butler Sherborn are among our highly valued sponsors.

Welcoming the next generation
This term we will be welcoming the Year 5 students from our Partnership Primary Schools to spend a day with us. It’s a great opportunity for pupils to meet with others who will be part of their wider year group in Year 7 and a day when new friendships are made and students begin to think about life after primary school. For the Year 6 students who have secured a place at Burford for this September, their two induction days are the first real step along the road to senior school. It’s a chance to settle nerves, find their way around our large site and check out the bus that will take them home at the end of each day!
