On Tuesday 26th March, Burgate welcomed twelve Netball teams from both the Burgate and the Downton Cluster of Primary Schools to take part in the annual Primary ‘Hi-Fives’ Netball Festival. Participants arrived to bright sunshine as the event began with a Coaching Master-class, led by our very own Year 9, 10 & 11 specialist Netball Leaders. Each team of children then rotated through each of the different activities, which focused on a different key skill required in the game.
As we draw towards the end of what is always very a busy Spring Term, I am delighted to introduce our Easter Newsletter. Students’ achievements at The Burgate continue on an upward trajectory, whether it be in an academic, artistic or sporting capacity; the highlights that follow are a testament to this fact. I am sure you will join me in feeling a great sense of pride in our whole school community, because these few examples are representative of the collective aspirations of Burgate students...
So proud of these Burgate photographers who were awarded with certificates and prizes tonight at Ringwood School, Harmony Exhibition, 1 April 2019 ...
All of our nominated Bronze Young Sports Ambassadors from around our Cluster of Primary Schools were invited to attend an Olympic Training Workshop at The Burgate School on Monday 18th March. The National Young Sports Ambassadors Programme is delivered with two main objectives in mind: to increase participation in school sport and to raise and promote the Olympic & Paralympic values.
The annual trip to the superb Academy Conferences gifted and talented conference took place once again in the glorious surrounding of Oxford Town Hall.
There was a fantastic opportunity for our Sixth Form students on Thursday 7th March, when through the school's involvement with Debating Matters for many years, Mr E Bailey the school's Most Able Gifted and Talented Coordinator was given the fantastic offer from a busy practicing solicitor from London to come to our school and run a three hour workshop giving students an insight into the moral and philosophical aspects underpinning a genuine legal case.
The trustees of The Burgate School and Sixth Form are proposing to sell approximately 1.5 acres (0.6 hectares) of land that is currently owned by the school.
