Sporting Events

The school believes that sports is an extremely important way in which to represent the school and develop a sense of pride. We are fortunate that there are normally a range of opportunities for inter-school sports within the county in which we try to fully participate.

At the higher levels, this tends to be around cross country, athletics, tennis, rugby and football. In recent years, the school has been very successful attending regional and county finals in all areas. These events take place within the school day with the aim of providing as much competitive opportunities as possible.

Whilst we do believe those with a talent for sport should be given opportunities to compete, our overall aim is to get all of our pupils active and therefore a set of inter-school events that we participate in are the 'Omnes Games'. Omnes means 'for all' and therefore, these inter-school events focus purely upon unusual sports such as tri-golf or speed-stacking so that pupils can be chosen based upon their attitude and effort rather than an underlying ability. The events are run as festivals, so no scores and results are recorded. It is all about the children enjoying representing the school and discovering a new sport.
