Basketball is played in both the Autumn and Spring term, enabling students to both play for two terms, or combine a term of basketball with either Rugby (Autumn) or Boys’ Hockey (Spring). We play a number of friendly fixtures against schools in the local area, both home and away in both terms.


Students train throughout the games programme for an hour and a half, twice a week.

  • Tuesdays are for a mixture of abilities taking part in a varied range of fitness, skill and technical sessions and set piece work
  • Thursdays are team squad based and are game related sessions including inter team training matches and preparation work for fixtures
  • Team practice also happens from Monday 4.00-5.00pm each week
  • Access to the Performance Programme sessions


Matches take place regularly during the Autumn and Spring terms.
