Sport & Sports Academies

The Cathedral School maintains a proud sporting legacy, encouraging participation from the early years through to graduation and beyond. Whether it is engagement in a friendly local club sport or competition on an international stage, our student’s success is measured by the values expressed in their sportsmanship, and the qualities gained by participation and dedication to their chosen sport, such as fairness, competitiveness, leadership, friendship, cooperation, along with physical and mental wellbeing.

The range and diversity of extracurricular sporting options continue to grow, including dedicated sporting academies for students in Junior, Middle, and Senior School.

The Cathedral School Sports Academy currently encompasses eight popular sports across all areas of the school including Basketball, Football (Soccer), Mountain Biking, Netball, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Swimming, and Rowing. The Academies allow students to develop growth and potential in their chosen sport with a dedicated coach, regular out-of-school-hours training, participation in public and interschool competitions, and academy-specific apparel.



Our Sports Academies are designed to nurture students’ abilities and allow them to progress their skills under dedicated coaches and customised programs.
