The school has now submitted its planning applicaiton to completely rebuild the school on the current site. This is a very exciting time for Burnham Grammar School after years of work with the Department for Education to ensure that we get the plans right for future generations of students to ensure another successful 60 years at Hogfair Lane.
The new building will give our staff and students an increase in both general and specialist classroom size and numbers, a sports hall, activity/dance studio, new sixth form study and social areas, dedicated drama studio, ICT suites, SEN facilities and many other facilities.
We are inviting our former students to come to the school on Wednesday 3 July to view plans and models of the new school which will be on display alongside our annual celebration of the creative arts: Made in BGS.
Our year 12 Design and Technology students organise and host an evening of arts, crafts, drama and music to showcase the talents and projects of our students across the school during the school year.
We do hope you will be able to join us at Made in BGS to see the work our current students are producing, as well as learn about how we are shaping the future of the school.
The creativity evening is free to attend, though there will be works of art and refreshments for sale on the day. Doors are open from 5pm to 7pm.
We do hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend, if you have any questions ahead of the event please email: email@example.com
In the 57 years since Burnham Grammar School was opened, our students have gone on to do great things.
It is wonderful for staff who taught those once timid year seven's to find out what people pursued and succeeded in, as well as for our current student cohort to see what it is possible to achieve once leaving the school gates for the last time.
The likes of Jimmy Carr and Ulrika Johnson once sat in the classrooms here, as well as students who have go on to become commercial airline pilots, chartered accountants, professional soprano singers, Guardian columnists, and BBC sports news reporters.
The diversity of careers which our alumni follow on to is a fantastic tribute to the plethora of skills which can be developed while at Burnham Grammar. All our alumni are a true inspiration to what our current generation of students can go on to achieve and that the stress of GCSE and A Level exams is not the be all and end all.
Throughout the corridors we have a collection of posters celebrating a number of careers which our alumni have gone on to, as well as advice from that former student to those now moving between classrooms.
We are always keen to hear from our alumni, and to show off what you have achieved since you left. To get in touch please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The school also hosts Alumni Association events where former students and staff can come together and reminisce of times gone by. We are hoping that the next such occasion will be within the grounds of the school before the redevelopment of the school gets underway. We will contact you as soon as we have a date for this event. If you are not on our mailing list please contact the above email address to be added.
Here is a selection of what our students have gone on to:
