Sport

We aim to give every child the chance to enjoy sporting activity.

 

The School is fortunate to have extensive grounds and sports facilities, which allow our pupils to enjoy a wide range of different sporting opportunities.

Games for all seasons

Football, rugby, basketball and netball are the major sports in Winter, with cricket, tennis and rounders being played in the Summer. Other sports available include volleyball, lacrosse and badminton. Climbing, swimming and canoeing are also offered. All pupils also have modules in gymnastics, trampolining, athletics and fitness training during their time at School.

Sports studies

In addition, PE can be studied as a curriculum subject at both GCSE and A-level, and pupils can also take the Sports Leader Award.

Competitions and sporting links

St Chris plays regular competitive fixtures all year round in all age groups against other schools in the region, and hosts tournaments involving a number of schools. The quality of our outdoor playing surfaces, sports hall and indoor pool allows us to develop strong links with groups and clubs in the local area.
