Headteacher’s Welcome



Burford School has a long and successful history in educating young people, celebrating its 450th anniversary in 2021. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, we provide exceptional education, both within and beyond the curriculum, for day and boarding girls and boys aged 11 to 18 years old.

Academic achievement forms part of our success, and each year our students consistently achieve outstanding GCSE and A-level results, which are well above national and Oxfordshire figures. A high proportion of our students go on to university, including Oxbridge, as well as secure competitive apprenticeships at companies including Mercedes and IBM.

We also pride ourselves on the high level of pastoral care and the broad range of extra-curricular activities offered to our students. Indeed, our Learning Zone offers personalised learning to enable all students to reach their full potential. Our Institute of Music excels in providing students with an array of musical opportunities. Whilst, our Athletic Foundation engages students, whatever their ability and potential, in sport through a selection of structured programmes.

However, the best way to truly understand life at Burford School is by visiting us. We welcome visits by appointment and also invite you to join us at our upcoming Open Evenings.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Mr M Albrighton
