We offer a variety of activities including trampolining, football, boccia, rounders, rugby, basketball, badminton, athletics, and dance at lunch and after school with teams participating in local competitions. We also provide opportunities for students to get become sports leaders, working with local primary schools to organize sporting tournaments.
