We strive to offer an inclusive and dynamic co-curricular sporting programme for all Woodhouse Grove students, whatever their interests and abilities.
Here are just some of the activities on offer:
After school training in the Spring term focuses on developing running technique, speed and endurance. More specialized Summer training incorporates jumps, sprints, middle distance and hurdles.
Training is open to Year 9 – Year 13 pupils and the Woodhouse Warriors teams compete at a local and regional level with their ethos “Play With Heart; Play with Pride; Fight Until the End”.
