The Burgate School and Sixth Form Debating Team have been crowned champions in the highly prestigious Debating Matters competition on Wednesday 5th February 2020 in the impressive surroundings of the Spark building at Solent University, supported and partnered by the premier facilitator of air traffic control services, NATS.
The recent Department for Education performance data confirms another hugely successful year for students at The Burgate Sixth Form. Students taking A levels achieved, on average, almost a third of a grade higher than their peers nationally and those students who receive the Pupil Premium achieved nearly half a grade higher. These results place The Burgate Sixth Form in the top ten percent of all A Level providers nationally and confirm the ‘outstanding’ Ofsted judgement given last year.
Louis Hodgkinson, Editor of Burgate Sixth Form News, writes:
As we approach the end of the Autumn Term, with Christmas festivities well under way, it gives me great pleasure to introduce our Winter Newsletter 2019.
Today Southampton City Art Gallery, along with Art UK delivered 2 sculptures from the gallery into our school. Weinvited 22 students to join us to take part in a unique opportunity, to spend a memorable day off timetable in contact, working with and being inspired by high-value well-known art work, enriching their knowledge, skills and confidence working around art.
