Explore Cathedral School


Ensuring that pupils leave the Cathedral School having been challenged to achieve their true potential in a structured, supportive and challenging environment is key to the Sports department’s ethos.

We are fortunate to have a number of pupils who perform at a regional or national level across a variety of sports. Providing support to maximise the potential of these pupils is a rewarding experience and is looked at both on the field along with providing an holistic approach to their athletic development. Equally as rewarding is being able to support pupils in developing their health, wellbeing, teamwork, physical competence and confidence. Monitoring and supporting their health and wellbeing takes place at set times over the year with opportunities for them to attend additional recreational fitness activities in the co-curricular programme.

The major sporting activities on offer are below, further information can be found via Co-Curricular Activities - Sport

Fixtures against other schools regularly take place during the week, with a regular Saturday morning fixture programme.  This fixture card is continually looking to be developed.

A programme of "second games" activities are on offer which run parallel with our team sports in Year 9 and beyond, which includes rowing, squash, kayaking, climbing and weight training.
