Our School Vision

LEARNING FOR LIFE

 Welcome to The Burgate School and Sixth Form website. Our aim is to present you with a clear sense of our ethos and aspirations, whilst providing a wealth of information about our school.

The Burgate School and Sixth Form is a school that wants every student to enjoy their learning and feel valued for who they are. The school provides high quality comprehensive education for children aged between 11 and 18 and we enjoy an excellent reputation within the local community for our high standards. Consequently, many students attend the school through parental choice. We provide a broad curriculum and a creative approach to learning that inspires curiosity, builds collaboration, helps develop resilience and encourages flexibility of thought.

The School and Sixth Form has a very attractive site with extensive, well-kept grounds whilst all accommodation is in permanent buildings and each area is equipped to a high standard.  We are situated on the outskirts of Fordingbridge, in Hampshire and our catchment area is extensive, stretching beyond Salisbury to the north and approaching Ringwood to the south. We also serve many outlying village communities within this area with students reaching the school on well-established bus routes.

As a school, we are continually looking to build on our success. Collaboration to improve learning and teaching and consultation on change will ensure the on-going success of our school.  Whilst I believe that The Burgate already provides the best local education for girls and boys, our desire to be one of the top comprehensive schools nationally continues with great enthusiasm. In 2018 we were ranked third of all schools in Hampshire for the key benchmark of progress.

Our motto is: ‘Learning for Life.’

Our Vision is: 'We want every student to enjoy their learning and feel valued for who they are.'

Our Mission is: 'We provide a broad curriculum and a creative approach to learning that inspires curiosity, builds collaboration, helps develop resilience and encourages flexibility of thought.'

Our Values are:

A love of learning
Hard work and the pursuit of excellence
Exploration and enquiry

 

Fairness and honesty
Confidence and independence
Originality and creativity
