Burntwood School is a girls' secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Wandsworth, London, England. The school was opened in September 1986, and the first headmistress of the school was Brigid Beattie-Moriarty - known to the pupils as Mrs Beattie. [1]

For the 2008–09 school year, there were 1,733 pupils enrolled at the school. In September 2009, the school admitted 283 new students: 71 places are offered to the girls who scored highest in the Wandsworth Year 6 Test; the remaining 212 places are offered to siblings of current students and then to those girls living closest to the school.[2]

While nominally an all-girls school, Burntwood does in fact have a small number of male students in the sixth form. In 2002, for example, two percent of the pupils were male.[3]

For the school year beginning September 2012, students moved into the new buildings which have been under construction the last two years.

The school converted to academy status on 1 July 2013.
