Burbage Junior School Wins Gold!

Burbage Junior School has received the 'Gold School Games Mark'. This is a tremendous achievement. The award recognises our excellent provision of PE and sport. Last year, large numbers of our children participated in extra-curricular sports led by our teachers and coaching staff. Furthermore, many pupils went on to represent the school in a variety of sporting competitions. Sport is a fantastic way of helping our pupils learn about the principles of teamwork and competition as well as helping them to understand the importance of leading healthy lifestyles. Well done to all! We look forward to another successful year of PE and sport.



On Tuesday 3rd March, our Year 6 Ricebowl team played Badgerbrook Primary School in the Quarter Finals of the competition. Despite losing, our boys put in a very good performance against extremely strong opponents.


The Hinckley & Bosworth Football League was held this year on three separate evenings at John Cleveland College. Our boys played very well and picked up 14 points from 8 league matches. They finished third in the final results table. Well done boys.

Cross Country


Well done to all the children who have represented the school at cross country this academic year.


County Cross County Championships


On Saturday 21st March, the Leicestershire Schools' County Cross Country Championships were held at Donington Park. Three of our children were selected to run for Hinckley & Bosworth: Isobel Weikert-Picker and Alice Moore in the Year 3 Girls' race and Harry Whitelegg in the Year 6 Boys' race. Well done to all three children who put in great performances on what was a very windy day.


Table Tennis


Team Table Tennis


Well done to our players who represented the school in the Zone Stage of the Butterfly Schools National Team Championships in Grantham. Our boys' team made it through to the semi finals with some excellent performances.


At the same tournament, our girls' squad finished runners up in their age group. As a result, they qualified for the Regional Stage of the Championships held at Blackburn on Saturday 21st March. The standard was incredibly high and our girls put in great performances to finish in 3rd place in their age group.


Congratulations to both teams.


Individual Table Tennis


The school was exceptionally well represented at the recent County Individual Championships at Leicester Grammar School. Our players took several of the top places with Kian Todd finishing runner up in the boys' event and Frankie Hallam winning the girls' competition. Frankie will now go on to play in the National Individual Championships. Congratulations to all who took part.





This year's Hinckley & Bosworth Area Gala took place on Monday 9th March. A good number of schools participated and it was a closely fought contest. Our squad put in some great performances, allowing us to win the overall competition for the fourth year running. Congratulations to all twelve swimmers.



School Council - Park and Stride


Our School Council has been busy this term, meeting several times and getting involved with different projects.


Recently a member of Leicestershire County Council's Sustainable Transport Office came to talk to our School Council about the Park and Stride Initiative. The councillors reported back to their classes on the scheme as well as introducing the County Council's Park and Stride poster competition. Huge congratulations to Maisie Grindrod in Year 3 whose entry was judged to be the overall winner. Maisie's poster will be printed onto a banner and placed at the front of the school to encourage people to Park and Stride. Well done Maisie!
