Take a look around the Sports section of our website and you will see that we certainly have a lot to shout about!

All staff are DBS checked and meet the schools standards expected for all adults working with our children.
Further details of all clubs (sports and non sports) can be found on the ‘Our Clubs’ page on the website, and waiting lists are held at the School Office.
Please note some clubs do carry an additional charge.
Please ask at the School Office if you have any queries, e.g. copies of the letters.
