Pro-Active School Performance


Advocating Excellence in Inter-School Sport

Mr Hawksworth and Mr Harris have set up a provision to deliver inter-school competitions. Pro-Active School Performance aims to give all young people the opportunity to play, learn and develop new skills in a variety of sports. In addition, we want to provide a quality-sporting provision for inter-school competitive sports that coincides with academic studies and other demands on the school.

We have a fantastic events calendar throughout the year that will take part on most Fridays. With there been a variety of new sports to take part in, hopefully each child will find a sport that they enjoy and potentially continue outside school.

Barnsley Area Football Finals Y5/6


The boys took part in the Barnsley Area football Finals. From start to finish they had a positive attitude & fantastic work rate. Lads played some great football & scored some team goals.We are so proud of them.



This Autumn we have co-ordinated, and delivered, our Pro-Active School Performance schedule, which has been designed to deliver a range of: high quality, inter-school sporting opportunities across a local partnership of schools. After working hard to get this flagship programme off the ground, BRPS were delighted to receive this testimonial from a parent who was delighted with the positive impact that inter-school is having on both her children....


Over recent months I have been very fortunate to watch both my children take part in a range of sporting activities that you have organised off school premises. They have enjoyed the whole experience of meeting children from other schools and being part of the team representing Burton Road.  In particular, I have seen their confidence grow by being part of the football team and the interaction with their team mates.  


I look forward to Burton Road being able to continue offering a wide range of sporting activities as this not only helps with their physical health but also mental health and preparation for progression to secondary school. Also at the Cross Country event, at Dorothy Hyman's, I was truly moved by how team mates cheered each other on to complete the course regardless of which school they were from.


I hope to come along to many more Sporting Activities
