Hymers College Sport

We aim to ensure that every pupil is given the opportunity to participate in sporting activities which help to boost their energy levels, concentration and lift spirits. A comprehensive PE & Games programme is designed to cater for a wide range of talents and abilities.

Our 45 acres of ground provides an ideal setting for a wide variety of sporting activities. We have invested heavily in our sports facilities and have numerous pitches for rugby, hockey and cricket along with athletics facilities, tennis and netball courts, a floodlit all-weather pitch, a swimming pool and a recently remodelled fitness suite.

Throughout the year, boys and girls in each year group (including the younger years) will have competitive fixtures against some of the country’s strongest sporting schools. It is our aim to ensure that as many of our students as possible have the opportunity to represent the school which builds confidence and gives them a huge sense of responsibility and pride.

Last year, 70 pupils travelled to Holland, Germany, France and Belgium on the Rugby and Hockey European Tours.

In 2019 we are embarking on a tour to South Africa.

Our school has a long and proud tradition of sporting success, and our teams are coached by experienced and committed staff, together with a number of visiting professionals. Hymers College has an enviable track record of both individual and team achievements at county, regional and national levels allowing our talented sports students to make progress in rugby, hockey, netball, tennis, fencing, athletics, cricket and swimming.

We are especially proud of the pupils who are selected to represent England or Great Britain, either whilst they are still at school or when they’ve progressed to university and beyond.
