At BBG Academy, we pride ourselves on creating an environment in which students are actively encouraged to participate in sport, inspired by the benefits and rewards which subsequently arise through their involvement. Our Physical Education teachers, who specialise in Rugby and Netball are very experienced and deliver a wide range of diverse training sessions, supporting students physical, mental, and social development. We strive for sporting success and achievement, while fostering a culture of participation and development through regular extra-curricular training sessions across the week.

Our expectations of our students are incredibly high and whilst supporting our students in meeting the high academic expectations placed upon them, we provide our students within our sports programmes with an abundant access to training and fixtures.

Commitment to the sports programmes once selected for one of our Sports Academies is outlined early in the student’s journey through the sports pathways at BBG Academy. Once part of the Sports Academy’s, the students will experience Strength and Conditioning Sessions, Netball or Rugby Applied Resilience (Games) training sessions, and Video Analysis Sessions.

As well as specialising in both Rugby and Netball we also offer a variety of other sporting opportunities for students throughout the academic year tailoring our extra-curricular offer to meet the needs of both our students and the specific sport season. Our students complete in football, rugby, netball, swimming, indoor and outdoor athletics, cross country, and equestrian.
