Information about this school – Burnham Grammar School

Burnham Grammar School is an average-sized secondary school which is selective.

Burnham Grammar School converted to become an academy school on 1 October 2011. When its predecessor school, which was known by the same name, was previously inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall.

The proportion of students supported at school action is low compared to the national figure. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is lower than national.

The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is higher than the national average, as is the proportion who speak English as an additional language.

Less than 5% of students attending the school are known to be eligible for pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals in this school), which is much lower than the national average.

The school is a partner of the established sixth form South Bucks Partnership.

The school does not use alternative provision arrangements for students.

Since the previous inspection a new headteacher and several new senior staff have been appointed.

The school meets the government’s floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for attainment and progress.
