Sport Expectations 

Signing up to a sport is a confirmation that you will participate in all training and games required for the entire term. Unexplained absences will be noted and parents advised.  Team selections will take commitment and attendance as well as ability and skills into account.

School Sport v Club Sport 

If your son signs up to play Sport for the school, the expectation is that School Sport comes first over any club sport commitments. Students are expected to attend training each week and to be available for all fixtures during the season. If you have any questions about this or you would like to discuss potential clashes, please contact the sports office.

'A' TEAM EXPECTATIONS

If your son is selected in an A team, attendance is mandatory to all training sessions each week for the duration of the season. It is not acceptable to leave training early to go to club training.

If your son is in Year 7, 8, 9 or 10, it is also expected that he be a member of the Athlete Development Programme for his respective Year group. These sessions are designed with long-term athlete development in mind and are an essential part of training to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
