A comprehensive range of team sports reflects the importance of physical development as well as social and emotional learning.
By participating in team sports, students develop co-operation and responsibility. As a founding member of the Independent Sporting Association (ISA) competition, the College has sought to uphold the principle of healthy competition where games are played in a spirit that reflects a positive approach to sport among schools of similar culture.
The College organises transport for away games and hospitality complements the sporting competition at home.
