Kirkham Grammar School has a strong reputation for sport and this is founded on a long tradition of competition. Over recent years the emphasis has been on maintaining standards but broadening both participation in major school sports and in a developing array of other sporting activities. This allows large numbers of pupils to represent the school in a variety of different areas. It is also important that sport encourages a healthy lifestyle and allows pupils to balance their activities in their school life. Both girls and boys have the opportunities to represent both School and House in a large number of different sports and enjoy a high quality of tuition and excellent facilities. The school boasts strong fixtures lists against other schools and also has its own House Competition internally to broaden participation.
Sporting participation is used to initiate team skills, commitment, self discipline and reliance and complements the work in other subjects and activities. We expect junior pupils to represent teams when selected and encourage seniors to participate where talent is exhibited. At senior level the demands on top teams are high in order that they compete on a national stage but throughout the emphasis is on engendering enjoyment and a lifelong passion for sport.
