Achievements in Sporting Competitions
We provide sporting opportunities for all within the curriculum and through extra-curricular activities and Level I Inter-House sports; football, netball and hockey.
We aim to ensure all talented young sportspeople have the opportunity to further develop their skills, talents and confidence in a wide range of Level 2 and Level 3 competitions, enabling them to access clear pathways to elite sport and competition whatever their circumstances.
Our Roll of Honour is updated annually; it only stretches back three years because we want it to be a record of what our current pupils have achieved during their time at school. The history books show our leavers have been just as successful in terms of sporting achievements during their time with us.
