We strive to offer an inclusive and dynamic co-curricular sporting programme for all Woodhouse Grove students, whatever their interests and abilities.
Our aim is for 75% of all our pupils to represent school in a competitive sports fixture.
We enjoy an enviable record in inter-school competition and regularly achieve County and National honours in a wide range of sports. Our strong relationships with a number of professional sports bodies combined with our Gifted Athlete Education Programme (GAEP) allows our students to extend their passion for sport at higher levels.
Every day, there are opportunities for students to either develop skills in their chosen sport or try something completely new, such as rock climbing, basketball, hockey, badminton, squash, table-tennis and triathlon.
Inter-house matches also play a vital role in the life of the school and in the development of our students, with house competitions in numerous sports.
Some of our sport in a bit more detail...
Each age group trains twice a week after school. Our coaching team works hard to ensure a player centred approach to the game, enabling students to compete with confidence at all levels.
Cricket is available across all year groups and practices run twice weekly alongside games lessons. There is a full Saturday fixture list and our teams compete on both local and national levels.
