Welcome to the Burnfoot Community School website. Our website provides you with up-to-date information about our school with facts about and for parents, pupils and staff.

We also feature information about our local community including details of groups, classes and events held in our Community Centre.

Our website is split into easy to use sections:



People To See

Things To Do


Read All About It



Each of these sections is, in turn, split into 2 parts; 1 containing School information and 1 containing similar details from the Community Centre.

If you have any comments or suggestions on how we could improve our website please contact us at the school.
