We value sport for its ability to build teamwork, commitment and grit. We value sport for its ability to build confidence, stamina and strength. Most importantly, we value sport as a vehicle for promoting wellbeing and perspective in a world which presents a host of pressures to our young people. Whatever your level, whatever your choice of sport, whether that be team based or individual, amateur or elite, the opportunity for you to get the very most from sport is here at Tettenhall College.
While we have high-achieving pupils who compete at top levels, our sports programme is inclusive, varied and encourages both team work and individual skills. Our pupils benefit from outstanding sporting facilities and alongside sports such as rugby, football, cricket, netball, hockey, tennis and gymnastics, we also offer fencing, archery, golf, yoga, karate, step aerobics, basketball, badminton and squash to name but a few.
Our aim is to encourage pupils to find a sporting activity they love and to provide a basis for life-long fitness and participation. Sport is played in formal lessons at least three times a week, and our house system offers a wide range of sports in which all our pupils can compete. The role of team captain is an excellent opportunity to develop leadership skills and to make a contribution to the life of the School. The opportunity to represent the school in sport is one that is highly valued.
We feel it is important for all children to be able to swim and are fortunate to have our own on-site pool. Children from Reception upwards have swimming lessons and our Swimming Academy runs training sessions prior to the start of school three times a week for our stronger swimmers.
