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.
We encourage our sixth-formers to get involved, whether it’s developing their passion or an opportunity to try something new. There is something for everyone here. Netball, rugby, hockey, swimming, cricket, football, athletics, cross-country, tennis and biathlon – all are open to every pupil. We value talent, attainment and hard work – in sports as much as academic work – helping you to develop the personal qualities of team work, self discipline and organisation. Valuable skills for your life after Colfe’s.
