Background to GCSE reforms
Changes to the GCSE's reflect the government’s intention that the qualifications better prepare students for further study and work, are more stretching for the most able students, and remain accessible to the range of students who have traditionally taken GCSE's.
At Burnside Secondary School we value our pupil's exam success as well as other vocational course results. Based on the recent Department for Education figures we are above the National Average for AP school, in English, Maths and a varied range of other subjects.
We also have other accreditations such as AQA Unit Awards and BTech: Sports and Active Leisure which our students access at Burnside.
