The college has a number of teams that play as part of the Association of College’s league and are very competitive each year. We play matches or train on Wednesday afternoon, so this will make up part of your timetable. To ensure that participation in college sports teams does not disrupt your learning, any student selected to represent college sports teams will not have timetabled lessons on Wednesday afternoon.
At the start of each academic year there will be trials for male and female football, male and female rugby league and netball in addition to basketball and hockey teams. Further details regarding the time, date and location of these will be advertised via the college student intranet and student email. Following trials there will be a pizza and soft drink meeting in the Sports Hall to provide information on the season.
