Excellent facilities include an astro turf pitch, four badminton courts, two cricket nets, indoor netball, tennis, hockey and a basketball court. The Sports Centre has a fully fitted cardiovascular suite and weights room, swimming pool and there are also three squash courts, five netball courts and a dance studio. Pupils develop their interests in the major and minor sports within and outside the curriculum.

Regular fixtures with other schools operate for boys in football, hockey and cricket and for girls in hockey, netball, rounders and tennis. The Inter-House games programme is extensive and includes major and minor sports - pupils can be involved either as players or organisers. In the Sports Centre there is the opportunity to develop skills away from the major team games.

In recent years boys have also competed in athletics, badminton, cross country, basketball, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo, golf and rowing. Girls have also competed in badminton, swimming, football, athletics, basketball and rowing.

In addition, a diverse programme of recreational activities includes aerobics, aquarobics, trampolining, dance and gymnastics. Pupils are encouraged to make the most of our extensive facilities by running their own sports activities in the evenings and at weekends.
