At Burton Borough School we pride ourselves in the appearance of our students. Visitors who come to Burton Borough often comment upon how well dressed our students are and how their appearance reflects positively both upon themselves and the school in general. We are proud of this and recognise that this is a reflection of the tremendous support that we have from our parents and carers.
