Record Results for The Burgate School as 83% of students gain Grade 4 or more in both English and Maths.

Year 11 students at The Burgate School have proven their dedication to achieve the very best GCSE results and consequently have beaten last year’s ‘basics’ measure (grade 4 or above in both English and Maths) by 5% to achieve a superb 83%. In English, 90% of Year 11 achieved at least a grade 4, with Maths close behind on 88%, both of which are way above the national average.


Outstanding Results follow ‘outstanding’ Ofsted judgement for The Burgate!

The students of the Burgate Sixth Form have confirmed Ofsted’s ‘outstanding’ judgement with another set of excellent A Level results. Their enthusiasm and their work ethic over the past two years has resulted in grades that will undoubtedly open up great opportunities. With 53% of all entries at A*- B Grades and 81% at Grades A*- C the students have beaten the current record set by the cohort of 2018! The vast majority of students have secured their place at their chosen university and we are delighted that two of our students will continue their education at Oxbridge colleges.
