Sport is important to us, and with first class coaching, it is possible for anyone to excel at an impressive array of team and individual games.

However, sport here is about much more than just the School teams and winning. Playing enables all children to develop different relationships with adults and make new friends. When a team pulls together the sense of camaraderie is uplifting and we recognise that personal confidence and leadership skills are generated by physical activity and fitness.

The main School sports are rugby, hockey, netball, cricket, swimming, tennis and athletics. With our extensive playing fields, floodlit all-weather pitch, excellent indoor swimming pool and sports hall the opportunity for fun and sporting achievement is limitless.

U19 and U14 County Netball Champions

Mrs Lea proudly writes, "We had a totally fantastic afternoon at the U19 County Netball Tournament. The girls were outstanding all afternoon, dominated all areas of the court and no matter what position or where they were put on the court they all worked together as a team."

"In games against Thomas Alleynes, St Joseph's College, NULC, Biddulph and Abbots Bromley we did not lose a single game or give away a single point, the girls were crowned County Champions and were awarded a very large trophy! This means the girls now qualify for the West Midlands Regional Tournament as representatives of Staffordshire County in January."

The winning team included: Elaine Prinsloo, Olivia Ridgway, Olivia Moore (Captain), Hollie Franks, Rachel Anderson, Sian Davies, Frankie Panayi, Mollie Jackson, Izzy Tilsley and Millie Wain.

A few days later, the U14 girls were also crowned County Champions and will represent Staffordshire at the West Midlands tournament for their age group.

Huge congratulations to Izzy Miller (captain), Raphi Sheldon, Maddie Brookes, Annie Salisbury, Anisha Saravanappa, Charlie Coburn, Niamh Taylor with particular mention to Maeve Coates and Becky Brittle from Year 8 who stepped up and played extremely well in an age group above their own.
