Focus on the best? Or develop the rest? People often think it has to be one or the other, especially in sport. In fact you can have both – and at Colfe’s we do.
There is something for everyone here. Netball, rugby, girls’ hockey, swimming, cricket, football, athletics, cross-country, tennis and biathlon – all are open to every pupil.
From national and county level to block-fixtures against our local rivals. In the past year, every single pupil in Year 7 represented the school in some sort of competitive sport.
GCSE Physical Education

Sport scholarships are offered at Year 7 and Year 12.
In order to be considered for a Sport scholarship the candidate must have met the academic requirements for admission to Colfe’s.
Assessments take place in December for Year 12 entry and January for Year 7 entry. As well as ability, we look for potential and enthusiasm and at both levels we expect fitness appropriate for an elite sports performer.
Information on how to apply is available in our Admissions section.
