The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy (BPA) is a co-educational Academy and sixth form in Burnham, Buckinghamshire, England. A small part of the campus is located in neighbouring Slough, Berkshire. It is an academy sponsored by E-ACT, and has approximately 740 pupils.[1]


In September 2005 the school was designated by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) as a specialist Sports College.[2]

In February 2007 an Ofsted inspection judged the school to be "satisfactory" and recommended that it be placed on special measures.[3] However, a follow up inspection in December 2008 judged the school to be "satisfactory" and no longer in need of special measures.[4]

As of March 2011 and October 2013 it was still rated good by OFSTED.[5]

Phone mast[edit]

The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy is one of several Buckinghamshire schools which host mobile phone masts. Contracts between Buckinghamshire County Council and various mobile phone operators generate an income of £145,000 per annum, of which about £59,000 comes from contracts for masts that are installed in schools.[6][7]


In 2012 E-ACT became the academy sponsor for the "Burnham Upper School" and the school officially converted to The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy.
