Football is extremely popular at St Christopher's and is part of the weekly sports' programme for Year 3 and above in Michaelmas Term. The fixture list is very full with school matches on Wednesday afternoons and tournaments at all levels throughout the season. We have enjoyed great success with undefeated teams and tournament victories at all levels in recent years, including finishing in the top four in the country in the national U13 IAPS Football Tournament 2017 and the U11 got through to the National Finals in 2019.
We have more girls playing alongside the boys in matches each year and we go to a number of girls' football tournaments throughout the year. We hold our annual U11 Girls Football tournament in the Lent term and which we have won on a number of occassions.
We work closely with Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, Shoot and other local clubs. There are after-school football clubs for pupils in the Pre Prep to help them to develop their skills.
