Burnside is an exciting and challenging place to learn and a warm and caring place to be. We are immensely proud that student achievement is consistently high. At Burnside our students make the progress far beyond expectations. Burnside is in the top 20% of school nationally for student progress at GCSE at 16yrs. In 2013 the Schools Network (SSAT) announced:
"Burnside Business and Enterprise College is one of the best schools in the country in outperforming expectations for their pupils and improving their future prospects."
We make a sincere promise to all of our parents and carers that we will nurture your most precious possession - your child, and ensure that they achieve their absolute best. Our standards and expectations are high and result in excellent examination pass rates.
