The Burgate School and Sixth Form, Fordingbridge, is celebrating the release of the validated 2018 national school performance tables, having been placed third best performing school in Hampshire with a Progress 8 score of +0.33. The Burgate is also the best performing non-selective school in the local area, including Salisbury. Female students at Burgate should be especially congratulated on their progress (+0.58) which outranked students at local grammar schools. With a progress score significantly above that of similar students at other schools, students for whom the school is in receipt of the pupil premium also performed particularly well.
Headteacher David Pover said, “The published data validates the culmination of two years of hard work by both students and staff who were committed to achieving the very best educational outcomes. The school has proven that a well taught and high quality curriculum has motivated its students to achieve the best possible results for their future.”
Most of these students are now continuing their journey in The Burgate Sixth Form, where The Burgate is again celebrating its examination results. The published A level league tables show that the Burgate Sixth Form is performing above the national average for the second consecutive year, with another substantial rise in the value added score to +0.14. This result places the Sixth Form in the top 25% of 16-19 providers nationally and ranks us as the best of all sixth form providers in the Salisbury area.
