Overview

Sport at St Christopher's centres on healthy competition, participation at all levels and, most importantly, enjoyment. The school is committed to offering positive and inclusive sports sessions for all children as well as achieving excellence at the top level. All pupils gain an opportunity to represent the school and we aim to have as many teams as possible from Years 3-8 playing on a fixture day. Teamwork is a key element in our approach and this is reflected in a strong team spirit when our boys and girls play other schools. The importance of good sportsmanship is stressed at all levels.

Our teams experience success at every level and recent achievements include winning the Ardingly, Bedes, Brambletye, Handcross Park, Shoreham College and Westbourne House Football Tournaments and the Ashdown House and Brighton College Rugby Sevens Tournaments. The boys also reached the quarter-finals of the South East IAPS Football Tournament in 2015.

Our girls are successful at netball, rounders and hockey at all levels, and came 4th out of 64 schools in the South East IAPS Netball Tournament in 2014. Many of our top sportsmen and sportswomen achieve sports scholarships to Brighton College, Hurstpierpoint College, Lancing College, Bedes and Ardingly. The school has a very successful tradition of winning sports' scholarships in Year 8.

In the winter, our boys play football followed by rugby at Glebe Villas (our home ground) whilst our girls play hockey and netball. Cricket and rounders follow in the summer alongside athletics.

Lower School pupils play football, tag rugby, netball, uni-hoc, cricket, rounders and athletics at Glebe Villas in addition to their weekly PE lesson.

Sports awards are available for entry into Year 7.
