Message from the Head

Daniel JamiesonWelcome to our school website. Burnside Business & Enterprise College is a comprehensive school in Wallsend for 11-18 year olds. The school has been serving the community of Wallsend since 1960 and adopted its current name when moving into our fantastic new buildings in 2004. Since that time the school has supported its pupils in achieving great success (including being recognised in the top 20% of schools nationally by SSAT in 2014). The 2016 results once again saw many success stories, particularly at key stage 5 where our sixth form students achieved our best ever results.

At Burnside our aim is simple, to be the best that we can be, both as individuals and as a community. We all work together to make our college the best it can be and share decisions about how to reach our potential. We believe in the strength and consistency of our three core values: pride, respect and achievement.

Pride: we take pride in all that we do, our work, the way that we present ourselves, and our actions.

Respect: we respect the thoughts, beliefs and personal qualities of those around us and act with kindness and tolerance, treating one another in a way that accepts that we are individuals and have separate thoughts, feelings and needs.

Achievement: we are resilient and determined; we don’t give up when we encounter problems we always try our best. We seek to be the best we can both personally and academically.

I hope that our website provides all of the information you are looking for but if you require any further information please use the ‘Enquiry Form’ in the contacts tab.
