Overview

At Burhill, we are passionate about learning, and we believe everyone is a learner. Our job at Burhill is to make sure everyone can achieve and attain the best they can.  We value independent thinkers at Burhill, so we want children to develop a positive and independent attitude towards learning.  Every child is encouraged to develop as an individual in a strongly caring and supportive environment where they feel safe and secure. The school provides a uniquely broad, balanced and creative curriculum so that children enjoy learning, are curious and motivated to learn.  We encourage children to find out more about the world they live in and to understand the contribution they can make.  Children have the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning and also for their own school environment.

The school has extensive grounds, which are used at playtime in good weather, PE, games and environmental studies.At the side of the school is a pond in a study area, while behind the school you can find a wild area of trees and flowers planted by the children, together with our school bee hives. Our bees are a popular feature with the children and are studied throughout the school. We now have an observation hive in the school which allows the children to watch the bees at work.
