Students and staff together feel privileged to be part of the celebrated school at Burford. Consequently, the members of our community are dedicated to each other and wish to grow further the legacy of opportunity built over a rich 450 year history.
Academic success forms the mainstay of what makes Burford special. We have a commitment to support students to achieve the best possible grades and unlock the next stage in their lives – the results of A-level students have put Burford in the top 25% of school nationally in recent years.
The majority of our Sixth Formers will seek places at the best universities including Oxbridge and those in the Russell and 1994 Groups.
Some choose to attend Art or Drama schools, whilst others will look to gain apprenticeships at prestigious companies such as IBM, Mercedes or Air Tanker. The range of destinations sets the bar for future aspiring students at Burford.
To flourish young people need to explore more than just academic pursuits. Students at Burford benefit from access to a wide range of cultural and sporting activities. These are vital for personal growth and long-term wellbeing; they also help to build those important friendships that last a lifetime.
We ask that you come to visit us. Only then will you get a true sense of what makes Burford the school it is.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Mr M Albrighton
