Sport is at the heart of life at Bishop Burton College. Whether it is competing at elite level, taking part for fun or even just supporting others, sport is an integral part of everything we do at the College.

We appreciate the wide ranging benefits of sport, including not only improving physical and mental well-being, but also developing leadership and teamwork skills. That is why the College has invested millions of pounds in developing outstanding facilities, as well as creating a diverse curriculum that covers all elements and fully prepares students for work in the sector.

  • Be an important part of a team
  • Gain good observational skills
  • Enjoy taking physical exercise
  • Develop skills to work in a huge variety of jobs
  • Work towards a range of respected professional qualifications
