Bishop Stopford School runs an extensive extra-curricular programme of sports & games.
Most of these activities take place at lunchtimes and are led by fully qualified staff members both PE trained and other members who hold National Governing Body coaching qualifications. In addition we utilise external coaches to deliver and enhance some of these activities.
We have excellent relationships with local sports clubs which provide pathways for our students to participate in the local community. These pathways have resulted in many students achieving County, National and International honours in various sports.
The PE faculty runs 3 House Games days which includes a summer Athletics focused Sports Day. A wide variey of other sports are catered for in both the Winter & Spring Games days, providing a solid intra-school competition platform.
Inter-school sport has a strong tradition at Bishop. Fixtures and competitions are participated in throughout the school year. These range from local District leagues, events in the Schools Games programme and County/National Cup competitions.
The school over the last 12 years has embarked on 5 overseas sports tours. These have involved tours to New Zealand & Fiji, South Africa, Australia and the Far East. The next tour is to Sri Lanka & Malaysia in 2017.
