House Leaders

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.

The house system allows pupils to receive the best pastoral care and academic monitoring, whilst also encouraging group loyalty and teamwork with competitive events such as sports day and inter-house sports competitions. With a wide range of activities available, the house system promotes wider participation and interaction with pupils from all years.

House leaders are:
