Due to the national lockdown announced on 4th Jan, all pupils should now work from home (except vulnerable/key worker children, who should attend school as normal). All lessons will be provided by remote learning on Microsoft Teams. We ask parents and guardians to help ensure students complete this work. For more information and assistance please see our letters home dashboard.


We have recently joined forces with Future First in order to develop our links with past students. 

This is a very exciting opportunity as ex-students can let us know, in a formal way, if they are interested in working with our current cohort of students. There are a variety of capacities in which they can help the school:

  • Talks and presentations·
  • Networking events·
  • Mentoring·
  • Video link presentations·
  • Attending event
"Without going down the typical clichéd route, I'd have to say it's helped me get to the point of my career today, making the correct decisions - avoiding all the obvious pitfalls that others may have fallen into. It's like that little brother that you check in on, can't shake off and are secretly quite fond of".

If you are interested in signing up to our expanding network of alumni the visit the web link below to register your interest and I look forward to hearing from you:

"As a former student, I’ve always aspired to return to Burnage as a member of staff to support the school in a similar way in which the school supported me".

"I was a student circa 1980's. The school was where I basically grew up, learnt so much, mostly fantastic memories".
