A top independent school is proud to have many of its pupils selected to play for county and national sports teams each year, including head boy Tom Morton who plays rugby for England U18s as well as Sale Sharks; and sisters Holly and Lauren Hunt who plays hockey for the England U21s and U16s respectively.
But it is not just the traditional school sports which are on offer at Stockport Grammar School with its excellent sports facilities which include a state of the art climbing wall, extensive playing fields and tennis courts, a swimming pool, gymnasium, sports hall with viewing gallery and squash courts. £½ million is being invested in new all-weather surfaces with the work taking place over the summer holidays.
Together with expert tuition from the highly skilled PE department and professional coaches such as ex-England cricketer James Ormond, the opportunities for participation in sport for girls and boys at SGS are endless.
As well as timetabled PE and games lessons, children are encouraged to get involved in fencing, archery, dance, girls’ football and cricket, basketball, climbing, water polo, canoe club and many more activities where the emphasis is on ‘having a go’.
The school recognises the value in allowing everyone, no matter what their ability, to experience the benefits of teamwork, personal challenges and simply trying new things.
Alongside the outstanding teaching and pastoral care at Stockport Grammar School, the girls and boys benefit hugely from these opportunities available to them throughout their time at the school.
