Sport 

Sport is flourishing at Heywood due to recent investment and establishing strong links to local sporting organisations. The School is committed to teaching pupils a broad, balanced sports programme, which is tailored to each individual and prepares children for a lifelong love and involvement in sport and physical activity. 

It is important that our pupils benefit not just physically, but they have opportunities to develop teamwork, decision-making and social skills; attributes that are not always developed in the classroom. 

We offer a comprehensive fixture list against other local schools giving all of our pupils the opportunity to compete and to learn to win and lose with equal grace as well as developing an appreciation of the etiquette associated with competitive sport. We run as many teams as possible across a wide variety of sports, whilst also promoting excellence for county, regional or even national honours. 

Spirited internal House Competitions in all the major sports foster friendly rivalry, whilst offering a supportive arena for all pupils to contribute, whatever their level of ability. Additionally, we host a wide number of tournaments and festival events in; rugby, cross country, cricket and tennis where both Prep Schools’ and Primary Schools’ are invited to compete. 

There are also county and regional sporting events, ISA competitions that we enter throughout the year and we finish the year with our annual Inter-House Sports Day.
