The Burgate School and Sixth Form is a very successful and popular 11 – 18 mixed comprehensive school with an excellent reputation in the local community for very high educational standards.  

We believe that Every Child Matters and we recognise all of our students as individuals, encouraging each to reach their full potential. Every member of staff is committed to raising standards of achievement and nurturing a culture of high expectations to drive success for each student. We want to support them in becoming independent learners, as well as confident and responsible young people.   

At Burgate we achieve excellent examination results by setting aspirational targets for each child. Students work hard towards these targets assisted and encouraged by teachers who enthuse and motivate them in engaging and thought provoking lessons. Relatively small class sizes enable our teachers to focus on individuals to greater effect. We are relentless in our pursuit of the highest quality of learning and are proud of our continued outstanding results which are testament to this commitment.   

With ‘Learning for Life’ as the school’s core philosophy, our hardworking, dedicated staff provide the best possible education in a safe, supportive and friendly environment where we offer a broad and balanced academic curriculum with a wide range of subjects offered at GCSE and A Level.   

The Burgate is a school that expects both staff and students to strive to do their very best united by a common belief that everyone’s learning journey should be exciting and individual. Together with academic and intellectual accomplishment we believe that the happiness of a child is the true measure of success.
