Sport is integral to life at Fyling Hall and we have an outstanding reputation, past and present. Not everyone can match the recent success of Fyling Hall Old Pupils’, Jamie Noon and Rachel Bamford, in representing England, but all our students are encouraged to achieve their personal best. The challenge, teamwork and sheer fun of the sports field help young people develop confidence and self-discipline – the foundation for a healthy, well-rounded adult life.

The main school sports for the boys are rugby, football, hockey, basketball, cricket and athletics and for the girls hockey, netball, tennis, rounders and athletics. All these sports are delivered as part of the school day using our excellent facilities and coaches. Pupils can also opt for horse-riding as one of their weekly sports lessons with an additional charge.

Sports Club Links

Fyling Hall has strong links with local sports clubs. This means that pupils have the opportunity to continue playing their sports of choice outside of school. This may be recreational, at a higher level or within adult clubs.

For seniors there is a strong link with the local leisure centre and weekly trips to the centre in order to use their extensive facilities.

Stables & Horse-Riding
