Due to the national lockdown announced on 4th Jan, all pupils should now work from home (except vulnerable/key worker children, who should attend school as normal). All lessons will be provided by remote learning on Microsoft Teams. We ask parents and guardians to help ensure students complete this work. For more information and assistance please see our letters home dashboard.

House System

Every pupil who attends Burnage Academy For Boys is member of a House. Each house is made up of pupils from across year groups and is identified by a different colour tie. Boys remain in the same house for the duration of their time at school. There are four houses at Burnage Academy For Boys:

Rowan – Red, Oak – Green, Maple – Gold, Ash – Silver

The House System is embedded in the school values in the following ways:


  • House Leaders and Form Tutors supporting pupils to develop a resilient mind set in the face of challenges through the planned personal development curriculum, conversations or bespoke interventions.


  • House Leaders encouraging debate and critical thinking through their assemblies and the topics studied in the Personal Development curriculum, which prepare pupils for life beyond Burnage Academy for Boys.


  • Working tirelessly with students and families to ensure that the best possible pastoral support is in place to allow students to be the best they can be at the school.


  • Ash – Mrs Cottrill
  • Maple – Mr Lewis
  • Oak – Ms Doyle
  • Rowan – Mr Lawther
