Rock Challenge

SBHS have made it through to the Rock Challenge Northern Open Final as one of the top 12 schools in the North of England! Well done to all students and staff involved and a special thanks to our sponsors, Twin Valley Coach Hire and Hillcrest Car and Van Hire. To read more, click here.

In December 2016, Burnley Road Academy was severely affected by the Boxing Day floods. Subsequently, the school had to temporarily close whilst remedial repairs were undertaken, and students had to be relocated to other local schools.

Further to fundraising over £1500 for flood relief and donating a class set of computers to Burnley Road Academy, SBHS recently organised a tea party for some of the students affected, to show support for our local community.
