The school’s wide range of sporting activities includes inter-school matches, country and national competitions.All students have access to our extensive co-curricular sports programme, where the emphasis is on friendly competition and exercise.

Our sport facilities are impressive, extensive and includes rugby pitches, indoor and outdoor cricket nets, all weather pitch, fitness suite, sports hall and grass cricket squares.

Our ambitious, challenging and stimulating BTEC Sport course develops knowledge and understanding of a range of factors that contribute to high performance Sport. We teach beyond the syllabus and encourage pupils to draw on their own sporting experiences when completing assessments or participating in several inspiring vocational opportunities.  

The boys regularly compete in the national finals in many different sports. In recent years we have had boys who have gained international honours in rugby, hockey, fencing, hockey, rowing, gymnastics, golf, swimming, squash and athletics.
