Sport and PE
PE and Sport is something we excel at here at St. George’s. Every session is accessible, inclusive and fun, meaning every child can learn and improve on their physical literacy. Our excellent Sports department is adept at challenging those with sporting prowess, meaning a high proportion of pupils progress onto a pathway that leads them to representing the island in sporting tournaments.
Blessed with 35 acres of space, pupils participate in sports lessons and clubs in all weathers. St. George’s has an award-winning Sports Hall with full-size netball court and gymnastics equipment, an outdoor court, onsite swimming pool, space for two full-size football/rugby pitches, an athletics track and cricket square. Our grounds also provide the perfect terrain for cross-country events. Come rain or shine, the children are able to be physically active and develop their sporting skill.

School Teams and Tournaments
Pupils take part in many tournaments throughout their time at St. George’s, particularly from Form III upwards where the children have many opportunities to compete as individuals or as part of mixed or single sex teams. All pupils take part in House Competitions and have the opportunity to represent the school.
Sports competitions include island-based and international football, rugby, hockey, cricket and netball tournaments and athletics competitions. Our school teams take part in an annual football, netball and hockey tour to Guernsey and the UK.
We run an extensive list of internal and externally-run sports clubs before and after school for pupils of all ages and abilities.
