Boys are able to trial for two sports but can only represent the school in one sport per season. The trialling process takes three to four weeks to finalise and teams are selected on ability, teamwork, and attitude. We do our best to ensure that every boy is given the best chance to display his abilities and to extend himself.
We form as many teams as possible, based on the number of teams available in the competition from other schools. Occasionally we have fixtures in other sports like badminton and touch rugby and boys will be invited to play in these teams.

In the winter terms (Terms 2 and 3) boys in Years 7 and 8 can trial for one of four senior football teams, the 1st XV or 2nd XV rugby team or 1st XI hockey team. Boys in Year 5 and Year 6 can trial for two 9-aside football teams, a ‘Colts’ (Year 5/6) rugby XV team and also one 8-aside hockey team.
Boys have the opportunity to take part in multiple trials at the start of Term 2 for winter sports.
