We are a caring school where exceptional relationships are fostered and every student is valued as an individual. We get to know our students to enable us to personalise the support they need to fulfil their potential. Our friendly but purposeful environment produces both excellent examination results and well-rounded individuals.

We have high expectations of our students and involve them in decisions about all key developments in the school. The maturity of our students is reflected in the school aims which they designed:

Caring Individuals – all members of our community work hard to support each other, to respect each other and most importantly themselves, whilst celebrating the diversity of our community.

Responsible Learners – students are supported to take responsibility for their own learning, understand the key importance of effort and making mistakes and develop the skills required to become responsible independent learners to fulfil their potential.

Active Citizens – students are involved in the decision making processes of the school and are given opportunities for leadership in all key stages. They understand how, and do, make their voices heard in the school, local, national and global communities and support those less fortunate through an exceptional programme of fund raising events for the adopted school charities

Prepared for their Future – students identify their passions and are assisted in reviewing the opportunities in those fields, whilst developing those wider skills that are essential to achieve in the outside world, but not always required in the exam hall.

Healthy and Safe – all students participate in the extraordinary range of extracurricular activities on offer and are equipped with the knowledge and assertiveness to make positive informed lifestyle choices.

Burnham Grammar School is an idyllic learning community where the relationships and teamwork between staff and students are exceptional and provide the support and reassurance for our students to strive to be their very best.

Quite simply our students; discover their passions and fulfil their academic, artistic, sporting and personal potential in order to choose their own futures!
