Senior Boys and Girls Sport

A considerable number of hours are dedicated to sport in the Cathedral School. In Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 pupils have one and a half hours per week of physical education lessons and in Year 11, they have one 45 minute lesson per week.  Every pupil experiences a wide range of activities which continually reinforce the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle.

House matches are organised in all major sporting activities giving pupils a further opportunity to develop their competitive instincts. The tournaments are generally organised at the end of term and prove ever popular with pupils and staff.

The school is determined to continue building on this strong foundation of sporting success, encouraging as many pupils as possible to represent their school in as many sports as possible.  Physical activity will always remain a vital part of education and we feel it is essential that we retain our depth, excellence and variety of sport.
