Swimming is undertaken throughout the year at our local pool. After school sports clubs provide further provision for the main sports like badminton, basketball, netball, tennis, taekwondo, golf, rock climbing, golf, chess, football, cricket and water sports.

We have regular sports trips to watch professional and international Netball, Hockey, Football and Cricket matches. We also have a Ski trip to Austria that the students are invited to attend during the Autumn term.

BTEC Sport:
At Key Stage 4, students complete the EdExcel/Pearson BTEC First Award in Sport. This course is equivalent to a GCSE, and the students do well with its practical, coursework based units. They can demonstrate their abilities in chosen sports. One unit is examined and this is done via an online test. Units currently offered include Practical Sport, Training for Personal Fitness, Leading a Sports Activity and the core examined unit on Exercise and Fitness.

Results have been very high since the BTEC course was introduced and many students have gone onto work and study in the sports industry.

Students also get the chance to experience the world class facilities at Surrey Sports Park (Surrey University) when conducting their fitness tests.
