Sports

Sport is an essential part of the holistic curriculum at Harvest and it is essential for each pupils emotional and physical development. Every pupil is expected to participate in at least one summer and one winter sport from the range offered at Harvest. The sport policy at Harvest focuses on the concept of maximum participation, providing opportunity for every pupil to learn and participate in a sport of their choice. The values of teamwork, commitment, sportsmanship, discipline and fun are essential in the delivery of sport at Harvest.

Supported by our dedicated coaches, every participant is spurred on to achieve their best in the sport of their choice. A full time High School Sports Administrator facilitates and oversees all of the training and fixtures. By combining the use of our own facilities with those of established clubs in the surrounding areas, we ensure that our pupils have the necessary resources available to enable them to participate and succeed.
