While football is not one of the the major sports at Belhaven Hill, there are many opportunities for children to play 'the beautiful game'.
Football is a very popular option as part of the formal activity sessions in the evening and fixtures are arranged with other schools. In the Autumn and Spring Terms the sports hall and floodlit astro are in regular use by those who enjoy the game and in the Summer Term, the long evenings are perfect for a kick-around on the fields.
The growing girls’ interest in football has sparked the introduction as football as an optional activity for girls with an emphasis on fun, improving techniques and ever-better results.
The Autumn Term also ends with a competitive patrol football competition in which all children take part.
