Our spacious grounds provide an ideal setting for sporting activities. We have invested heavily in our sports facilities and currently have numerous pitches for cricket, football, hockey and rugby along with athletics facilities, tennis and netball courts, a floodlit all-weather pitch, a swimming pool and a recently remodelled fitness suite.
During the year there are many competitive fixtures against some of the strongest sporting schools in the country and we enter various sporting competitions at regional and national level. Sports tours are a regular feature of the calendar and in October this year, 70 pupils will travel to Holland, Germany, France and Belgium on the Rugby and Hockey European Tour.
The school has a long and proud tradition of sporting success, and school 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 the gifted and talented 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 while they are still at school or later when they are at university and beyond.
However, our focus is not solely on the elite; we ensure that every pupil has the opportunity to participate in sporting activity and exercise. Our comprehensive PE & Games programme is designed to cater for a wide range of talents and abilities whilst we have also introduced a number of new sports to our programme in recent years, including biathlon and squash.
