GCSE Results 2020
We are immensely proud of our hardworking cohort of GCSE students who have received an excellent set of GCSE results. Together with the A-level and BTEC results, these results are the best the school has ever achieved and reflect not only the two years of hard work that they and their teachers have put in, but also recognise the consistently high academic standard of the school.
We hope that, with schools and colleges opening their doors once again, each of our students can now put the uncertainty of the last few months aside and go forward with confidence.

A-level Results 2020
We wish to congratulate all of our Year 13 students on their A-level and vocational results. In these unprecedented times, we are delighted that over 90% of our Year 13 students will be starting the next stage of their educational journey at the university of their choice.
In addition, we have a number of students starting exciting apprenticeships, including one who has secured a degree level apprenticeship in IT.
We are extremely proud of all our students who have shown great resilience and fortitude in the light of the current exceptional circumstances and challenging media coverage. They have been a hardworking cohort since the beginning of Year 12 and we know that they will go on to be successful individuals in their life beyond Burford.

You may be aware that an autumn series of exams has been scheduled for students who would like an opportunity to improve on their awarded grades. These exams will be available for all GCSE and A level subjects, but vocational qualifications, such as BTECs and Cambridge Nationals, are still to decide.
To enter for exams in the autumn series, students should complete an Exam Entry Request Form. Fees will be charged by the exam boards as normal for entries, but the school will cover these costs using the rebate we received from the summer entries. Therefore, entries will be free for students.
