Sport for All

A Successful Track-Record

Townsend Church of England School is justifiably proud of its sporting success.  All pupils from Year 7 to the Sixth Form participate in a varied and challenging curriculum to develop an interest, skill and enjoyment which will encourage fitness and health for life.



Many school teams and individuals from all age groups compete at all levels.  All interests and skills are catered for to satisfy the most enthusiastic and dedicated sportsperson and those who are interested only in recreational activities.



Older pupils also benefit from access to a range of activities at nearby facilities when appropriate.




Inter-form sports competitions are great events and give pupils who would not normally play competitive sports the chance to compete.  There are numerous sports clubs which take place at lunchtimes and after school.




‘A good range of extra-curricular activities is provided, particularly in Physical Education, Music, Dance and Drama. These raise pupil’s interest and support their overall development well.’
