Once again, students at Burford School have been celebrating some excellent ‘A’ level and BTec results. Headteacher, Mrs Kathy Haig said:


‘Our students have achieved another outstanding set of results, despite the new, more rigorous, examinations. We are so pleased for them and know that the hard work and efforts that they and their teachers have all put in over the last two years has enabled so many of them to take up their first choice University places and apprenticeships. We are particularly pleased to note that over a third of all A level grades awarded are A*/A, and all our BTec students achieved Distinction*/Distinction grades. This demonstrates once again what an excellent environment for learning Burford School continues to provide.’
