Sport plays a formative role in individual personal development. All our students are encouraged to participate in sport, whatever their aptitude and ability, and gain the personal benefits necessary for success not just in sport but in other fields: improved physical fitness, self-respect and confidence, team awareness and leadership, determination and commitment.
We offer a wide range of sports, providing the students with the chance to take part in individual and team games, aiming to develop students' sporting skills and knowledge of games.
Students have the opportunity to attend lunchtime and after-school sports clubs. Fixtures are played on weekends and midweek. Talented students are offered the opportunity for further progression in district and county trials.
