Burnside Business and Enterprise College is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form located in Wallsend, North Tyneside, England.[1]

The school was opened on 15 July 1960 by the chairman of Parsons under the name, Wallsend County Technical School. It cost approximately £280,000 for the building work, the furniture and the equipment. On 3 September 1969, the school was renamed as Burnside High School.[2] The school took its current name when it moved into its new buildings in September 2004 that were later inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II. These new buildings cost around £15 million.

In 2009, The Wallsend Sports Centre began moving into the school grounds, and another new building is currently under construction costing £7 million. Subsequently, the school facilities will improve - the fitness suite in the centre will be larger and a swimming pool will also feature inside the centre. In the Summer of 2010, the building was complete, creating a large swimming pool and fitness suite available for use of local people and students.
