Sadly the Covid-19 pandemic has meant many of these activities have been curtailed, but as soon as we are able to start these up again, we are keen to do so.
After School Sports
Throughout the year we offer a wide variety of sporting opportunities both competitive and social. We are part of the Bristol Schools competitive leagues in a variety of traditional team games, new emerging sports, and festivals. Sessions run on our large school site with modern facilities, and expert staff. Our clubs are inclusive and an excellent way to take your first steps in a new activity or fine tune existing skills, we want students to develop socially and nurture their wellbeing through physical activity. Our competitive fixtures are played home and away as well as hosting events for the North Bristol region this gives our students the opportunity to organise, lead and officiate competitions.
We have excellent relationships with sports clubs in our community and actively encourage our students to participate beyond the school, this has led to students competing in county and national competitions.
