Sport

At Concord, we do sports differently. It’s not about being part of the in-crowd, nor is it about short term achievements. It’s sport for life.

Our inventive sports programme is designed to introduce students to a wide variety of sports, develop their fundamental skills and encourage continued sport participation beyond school. 

 

Sports at Concord is sports for all. This means catering for those who are already keen athletes and for those who arrive to us with less enthusiasm for sport.

Every September, upon arrival at Concord, students are introduced to our dynamic Sports programme on our high-ropes course. This is closely followed by Concord’s famous Colour Run. Team building, self-confidence and excitement are vital for helping students to settle in at Concord, build strong relationships and look forward to strengthening a healthy relationship with sport throughout their time here.

Core PE

Focusing on core skills development, PE and recreational sport is offered to all students and compulsory for those in Lower School. Students learn amongst mixed ability and mixed gender groups, trying new skills and sports. Recreational sports encourage students to take part in other community events, like the local Park Run every week and Sixth Form students have the opportunity to become school lifeguards.

Outdoor Education

Broadening students horizons through Outdoor Education is another strong pillar in our sports programme. Students develop strong self-confidence and team building skills, whether it be on our high ropes course, orienteering, climbing or learning to ride a bike.

Competitive Sports

Concord students can take part in regular competitive sporting events, against other schools or sometimes at regional and county level. While we ensure that everyone is encouraged to take part, no one is made to feel like competition is compulsory or pressurised. The key to competitive sports at Concord is encouraging participation and developing confidence so that students feel able to compete if they wish.

Elite Sports

Our Elite Sports Programme supports Concord students who have achieved exceptional performance and potential in their sports. The programme offers tailored, individual support and links students to local clubs. Students enter (up to) nationwide competitions/tournaments. Recent members of the elite Sports Programme have competed in track and field, swimming, golf, cricket, fell running, fencing, archery, driving, wind surfing and tennis. We support students in any sport they excel at where we are able.
