Thank you to all alumni who joined us at the event at the Lansdowne Club on Friday November 11.

We hope to see even more of you at the next event (watch this space for a date).

Burnham Grammar School is keen to keep in contact with as many former staff and students when they leave. Whether it be to see how they can support our current students with offers of work experience, or if they are able to give time to come in and be speakers on the school careers days. Thank you to those of you who have already offered work experience placements, along with further support for the school.

Over the next few years the school will be undergoing a large rebuild and refurbishment to provide better teaching environments and facilities. Before the bricks start to fall, we will be inviting all former students and staff to visit the school at a special Alumni event.

Invitations to this will be sent out in due course.

If you would like to find out more about how to be kept up to date with school news as well as find out how to support the school, please get in contact with Miss Billingham: or call 01628 604812 ext 245.
