Our games programme gives the students an opportunity to play sport and participate in physical activity.  We believe sport develops pupils' confidence and resilience through physical, technical and mental stimulus and exposure to teamwork and leadership opportunities.  It is important all students find an area or niche that they can explore and most importantly enjoy in the hope that this will result in a lifelong approach to sport and physical activity.

In the First to Fifth Forms pupils follow the major sport of the term, so that we have time to teach and coach them to a good level of proficiency.

Fifth and Sixth Forms

The pupils in these year groups are expected to continue with the sport of the term if they have previously played for a team (at any level).

If a pupil is not part of a team they are encouraged to participate in a sport or activity that they can develop and improve upon, in order to promote a lifelong approach to health-related fitness.

Depending on the season, as well as the main sport of the term for those in a team, the range of sports on major games afternoon throughout the year consists of:
