Sport is an integral part of life in Wesley College, with each student having the opportunity to participate in numerous different sports and activities throughout the academic year. An important aspect of the College's ethos is recognising the importance of a healthy life-style and the value of participating enthusiastically in physical and sporting activities.
We are fortunate to have superb sporting facilities to ensure that all of our students have this opportunity to achieve their full potential and enjoy their sport in a spacious and well laid out sporting campus. At the moment, we are witnessing a major building project centered around the sports hall and gym which will rejuvenate this area of the campus, while adding state of the art facilities that will no doubt further improve our sporting prowess.
In recent years we have enjoyed tremendous success with our teams winning plenty of silverware and accolades. Alongside our hard-working and talented students, we are very lucky to have a dedicated and passionate staff who strive to bring out the best in our students and encourage participation and enjoyment of their sports, many of whom have achieved representative honours themselves. Participation at sporting fixtures is not limited to those involved on the field of play, with great support for our teams and athletes at big matches and events each season from current and past students and of course parents and friends of the school.
Winter sports such as rugby, hockey and badminton generally run from August until March, depending on how the calendar falls. Equestrian and Athletics (cross country) take place throughout the academic year. In the Summer term, students have a very broad range of sports to choose from. Despite it being a shorter season, all sports are highly competitive and great fun.
