Sport is a large part of School life and this is particularly so in Seniors.  

Positive self-esteem and physical and mental well-being, contribute to overall success, both inside and outside of the classroom. From the very first day students are invited to engage in sport and be ambitious in reaching their goals, regardless of level and ability.

Students take part in a range of Winter and Summer sports and take part in weekly fixtures competing against their peers at other independent and state schools within the North West region.
