On Friday 21st September Billesley took part in the year 5/6 girls football festival at Yardley wood playing fields.
Having such an enthusiastic response from the girls to play Billesley entered 2 teams and took 16 girls to take part.  The girls were a credit to the school in their attitude and their endeavour.

Billesley Sports Day – 12th July 2018

Thursday 12th July saw the Billesley Sports day take place. Our venue was Moseley Rugby clubs astro turf pitch in which we are very grateful to them for the use.

The day followed a very active, fun and simple format. A series of stations created to test the children’s coordination, agility, athleticism and teamwork.

The day was a brilliant experience for the children, this was achieved by the team work of the whole Billesley staff, who all worked extremely hard in all their roles to make the day such as success.

Ford were the KS1 winners.


Mill were the winners of KS2 competition.

Wasps Rugby Festival

Thursday 5th July twenty eight of our year 4 children participated a Tag Rugby festival organised and delivered by Wasps Rugby team. The venue was Camp Hill Rugby club.  It was a non-competitive event that allowed the children to play lots of matches refereed by first team players. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and gained a lot from the experience.IMG_1727 IMG_1725

Superhero Sponsored Run – What a day!

What a day we had yesterday with the whole school at some point coming up to the beautiful sunny Billesley Common to take part in the annual Red Tree sponsored run.

Super heros

Each year group came up and ran 1 kilometre in their House teams.

The staff support and participation was amazing, it was a brilliant team effort from everyone.


Parents and guardians came to support and run also which added to a real Billesley community event.

Billesley Girls World Cup Competition

On Monday 18th July 2018  Billesley Primary School hosted their first ever girls football competition. The competition day was organised to create an opportunity for year 5/6 girls. As it was a world cup year it was themed accordingly.

We were very lucky to have Solihull Moors FC in partnership with us to allow us to provide a wonderful venue and also information about how the girls can get involved in football outside of school.

Five schools entered, Billesley, The Oaks, Percy Shurmer, Colmore and Brookfields. The competition was played as a league format to decide who would play for the 2 trophies. The top two teams would play in a final for the World Cup trophy, the third and fourth placed teams would play for The Plate.

Percy Shurmer and Colmore played out the World Cup final and the winners were Percy Shurmer in an excellent match.

The Plate went to penalties between The Oaks and Billesley after a 0-0 draw. The Oaks held their nerve to win the shoot-out.

We would like to thank all the schools that attended to make the afternoon a fantastic event.
