    Sport at The Chorister School

    U11 Athletics Cluster 2With extensive playing fields and a Sports Hall, The Chorister School has a full programme of games for children of all ages. In addition to following the traditional team sports, children also receive tuition in swimming, basketball, badminton, rowing, tennis, athletics and dance. We seek to give pupils an enjoyment of fitness and sports that will ensure that they live a long and healthy lifestyle.

    Girls’ Sport

    In the Michaelmas and Lent Terms the main girls’ sports are hockey and netball, with the Summer Term’s focus being on athletics and rounders. However, we also allow our girls the chance to experience a wider range of sports, such as cricket, yoga, orienteering, dance, cross-country and many more.
    Netball sessions take place on our newly surfaced netball court, unless rainy weather forces us into the Sports’ Hall, and hockey sessions for the Intermediate and Seniors happen on Durham School’s AstroTurf with the Juniors playing on our own playing field just a short walk away from the school. We start coaching all these sports from Year 3 and continue right through to when they leave us at Year 8.

    In addition to our twice weekly training sessions, all age groups have the chance to represent their school in a large number of fixtures against local teams. We also take part in County and Regional competitions and many of our girls continue to play sport outside of school to extremely high levels.
