King’s is renowned in the North West for its excellence in sport. We cater for all pupils regardless of gender, age, ability and aptitude and are proud of our commitment to the concept of a broad based pyramid (maximum opportunity and mass participation) with a peak (the pursuit of excellence) – a philosophy that has been acknowledged and praised in the past by both ISI and by Sport England.
Pupils and former pupils in recent years have represented their country or been National Champions in 22 different sports. On many Saturdays more than 350 pupils from all Divisions and some 25 staff are simultaneously engaged in and committed to extra-curricular sport.
The range of sporting opportunities includes: athletics, biathlon, camps and expeditions, cheerleading, cross-country running, gymnastics, hockey, netball, orienteering, outdoor activities, rounders, sailing, skiing, soccer, squash, swimming, table tennis, tennis, trampolining and volleyball.
