King Edward VI Academy

King Edward VI offers every child the opportunity to fulfil their academic, creative and sporting potential to ensure each and every child achieves academic success.

It is my pleasure to introduce myself, Ms. Burton, as KEVI’s Sports Enrichment Officer. I have had a real passion for sports since childhood and I am still a keen member of a local ladies’ hockey team and netball team. I have previously been a Zumba instructor and continue to enjoy regularly attending Kettlercise classes and running. My highest sporting achievements have been to represent the county at both hockey and netball and to have been part of the British Army Hockey Squad.


As Sports Enrichment Officer at KEVI, I aim to ensure that all students are given the opportunity to try new sports and activities, with appropriate coaching and support to higher levels where appropriate. I will encourage students to participate in clubs, fixtures and events, acknowledging those who show potential, and praise a resilient, respectful nature and good sportsmanship.


This term we have an array of Clubs on the Enrichment Timetable that give students a fantastic opportunity to gain experience and improve in different sports and activities. From these clubs, team selections are made for upcoming fixtures and events, such as the DRET Summer Cup 2023, this year is the 10th year anniversary and is set to be an incredibly special event to be involved in.
