Junior Sport

Each child within the Junior School will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of different sports.

These include: athletics, cricket, cross country, football, hockey, netball, rugby and swimming.


Our comprehensive programme of competitive fixtures against other schools in the region ensures that every child represents Hymers College in sport. This helps to develop a real sense of pride, boosting confidence and giving the children a huge sense of responsibility and independence.

Members of the netball, hockey and rugby teams have the opportunity to participate in a three-day national sports tour. Our junior sports teams have achieved great success across all fixtures, including winning the Girls’ North East of England HMC Athletics competition, U11 HMC Netball Tournament and qualifying for ESSA National Swimming Finals at Ponds Forge for the last ten years.
