Sport on Offer at Renwick School

At Renwick School we offer a wide range of sporting options for our students to take part in at school level and regional level. The list below shows the sports on offer each year, but is subject to change depending on numbers each season.

Sports not on this list are offered through local sports clubs instead; they generally hold their own separate muster events at the start of each season. We endeavour to put all external information from sports clubs in our weekly newsletter to parents.

We use our school newsletters and Hero to communicate with parents about school sports. Information and links to register can be found on Hero, and cancellations are also notified via Hero.

Sport uniforms are distributed to school sports teams at the start of each season or before some one-off events. Sports uniforms must be cared for and returned at the end of each season or tournament.

Sports teams and organisation is organised by the team of Administration staff. They manage winter and summer team sports as well as Swimming Sports, Cross Country, Athletics Sports and Mountain Bike Madness:

Nick Rowton is our Teacher in Charge of PE, managing one-off events and festivals that are held during school hours, as well as sport taster days held during school hours throughout the year:
