At Burnley High School, everyone is committed to providing the best education and opportunities for our students. At the heart of our school’s work is a commitment to high aspirations for all; for our students to be safe, happy and successful developing as individuals into caring, responsible citizens who participate fully in school life and are proud of their achievements. Every student at Burnley High School is encouraged to have aspirational and ambitious goals and everybody is responsible for creating a culture of academic excellence. Our vision as a school is to tackle social disadvantage through high expectations and an ambitious curriculum.

This commitment is built upon a shared belief in hard work, self-reflection and a culture of respect and support for others.
