At Burnley High School we are passionate about sport. We are firm in our belief that sport is part of a balanced education and therefore encourage every student to participate at the level which suits him or her.

Girls train and compete locally in netball and rounders whilst boys play football and cricket. All students are also able to access a whole host of other sports events such as gymnastics, cross country and athletics.

Whatever their ability, we want all pupils to enjoy their sport and to be well coached. We have five pupils who are part of the Sports Ambassador program and who are responsible for organising and leading intra-school sport. This opens up opportunities to many more of our pupils and gives each individual a chance for his or her moment of glory.

Currently we are in a temporary site which limits the opportunities we can offer. However as the school grows and we move into a permanent site with better facilities we hope to build on what we have already achieved.
