  • Sports Development Programme


    Since 2014 we have been offering students in the junior school to take part in a Sports Development Programme. The purpose of the programme is to provide promising Year 9 and 10 sportsmen with the opportunity to develop fully as talented athletes. The programme includes five specialised classes in basketball, cricket, football, hockey and rugby. A key objective of the Sports Development Programme is to promote ideals in our young athletes that will enable them to make informed decisions about furthering their involvement in sport.


    Students will be required to apply and trial for selection into the programme.

    TRIAL DATES:

    Rugby/Football - Thursday 16 November (9:00am - 2:30pm)
    Basketball/Cricket/Hockey - Friday 17 November (9:00am - 2:30pm)


    You MUST attend the trials in order to be selected into the programme.
