Sport

At Wellingborough School we offer a wealth of sporting activities which form an integral part of school life. We strive to offer pupils every opportunity to enjoy sport and to experience success. Those who have the desire to excel and those who just wish to participate, benefit from expert coaching and positive sporting experiences.

We provide an extensive fixture list for girls and boys in all year groups, often fielding enough teams for all pupils to play on a particular day. Fixtures are usually played midweek and at the weekend.

Wellingborough School has an enviable sporting reputation, and our ‘Sport for All’ ethos has uncovered many fine talents. We aim to give every pupil the opportunity to represent the School in a sporting event or fixture. It is hoped that this superb provision for sport at Wellingborough School will instil a lifelong love for sport as well as providing individuals with the added benefits that sport provides such as self-discipline, teamwork and fair play.
