Sport is a compulsory part of the Sixth Form curriculum, with a double Games lesson every Tuesday afternoon.
Pupils can follow either of the two pathways:
1. Competitive sport to represent the school (Hockey, Netball, Cricket, Rowing)
2. Recreational sport, e.g. badminton, aerobics/yoga, fitness, football, swimming, tennis
There is also the opportunity to gain the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.
Pupils have the opportunity to attend our swimming squad sessions after school, which are run by coaches from our partnership club Norwich Swan. Keen riders can also represent the school Equestrian team in show jumping, dressage or cross country events.
We encourage Sixth Form pupils to take up leadership roles in sport, whether it’s becoming a House Captain, volunteering to assist at a sports club or in a Prep PE lesson. All pupils have the opportunity to gain the Tennis Leaders Award and assist with the infants weekly after school tennis session.
As well as local fixtures, we also compete in county and regional competitions, as well as at GDST sports events (sports such as hockey, netball, dance, swimming and cross country).
Talented performers have the opportunity to be chosen for the prestigious GDST Select teams. These representative teams are made up of the best performers across all 25 schools in hockey, netball, cricket and football.
We are delighted to work in partnership with many local clubs to ensure all pupils have a variety opportunities to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle when they leave Norwich High. Our partnerships include Norwich Swan Swimming Club, Norwich Canoe Club, Swardeston Cricket Club and Norwich Dragons Hockey Club.
