We love our sport at Burghill Academy and we have previously been named 'Primary School of the Year for P.E & Sport' at the Herefordshire Sport Awards, something we were very proud to achieve. 

We are passionate about providing our pupils of all sporting abilities with opportunities to take part in a wide variety of sporting activities and offer a range of after-school sports clubs. As a school we promote 'inclusive competitiveness', an ethos of encouraging children of all abilities to give their best when competing in sport.

We enjoy taking part in a number of events which have included: cross-country races, swimming galas, hockey festivals, biathlons, netball matches, football and tag rugby tournaments and much more. As a school, we also run both tag rugby and girls' football mini-leagues for us and a variety of local primary schools to engage in.
