50th Anniversary

Our anniversary celebration will be on Wednesday 19th September

The children will be having a 1960s day, finding out about life at Burbage School when it first opened on Cavendish Avenue.

Former members of staff are invited for guided tours and refreshments from 2pm until 3pm.

Former pupils welcome to visit from 3:30 until 4:30pm.

September 2018 will be the 50th anniversary of Burbage School on the Cavendish Avenue site.  We are looking for memories from ex students from the early days and we hope to put them in a book to mark the occasion.  

The children on the School Council have compiled a questionnaire which can be dowloaded in PDF format here 50th Anniversary Questionnaire.  Or you may prefer to complete our anonymous online survey here.  If you have any photographs you would be happy to share, we would love to see them.  You can email digital versions to the school office email.

Privacy Notice: Please fill in your details (questionnaire or survey) if you agree to any pictures or information being used.  By doing so, you are giving consent for information and photographs to be shared on social media or in the local press as well as for internal school-use.  We cannot guarantee the return of paper-based information/photographs but we will retain data for no longer than a year after the celebrations.  Should you wish to withdraw this consent at any point, please contact school.



The original Burbage Primary School was in a small stone building off Leek Road. As the village expanded and numbers of pupils rose, a new school was built on the present site, off Cavendish Avenue, in 1968.

In 2000 Burbage Primary School became a ’Community School’ which is the conventional category for most County schools.

Our school is situated in very pleasant grounds.  We have a main building which houses seven classes and three annexes; two which each house two infant classes and one which accommodates three junior classes.  The classrooms in the main building have access to large work areas where children are able to pursue practical activities such as cooking, water and sand play, model-making and artwork.  We have a large, spacious hall which is used for assemblies, lunch and P.E.

We would like to find out more about the history of our school.  If you went to Burbage Primary School and have some special memories you would like to share why don’t you email them to us and we could add them to this page.
