Wrekin College


We believe in excellence but also in participation – sport for all, and for life.

For a small school, our sporting prowess is remarkable. We aim for very high standards in our core sports and offer a very wide range of options – up to twelve different sports in any term. Our sporting philosophy is based on a pyramid, with elite athletes at the top (including our national level gymnasts, swimmers and cross-country runners) and minor sports to appeal to all at the base. 

We maintain a very busy fixture list in our major sports (rugby, football, hockey and cricket for boys; hockey, netball, and rounders for girls) and also compete actively in many minor sports – including swimming, tennis, athletics, basketball, badminton, cross-country, squash, Fives and fencing. Netball is particularly strong, with our teams regularly qualifying for regional and national finals, but we also provide boys and girls to county and regional squads in many other sports, including cricket, rugby and hockey.

Our junior teams benefit from expert coaching – an investment for the future, as well as providing our younger pupils with sport of the highest quality. Our sports hall includes a full-size swimming pool, excellent gymnastics facilities and a popular fitness suite; we also have extensive playing fields and a floodlit astroturf pitch. Our teams regularly tour abroad – a terrific opportunity to combine sporting challenge and cultural enrichment. Click here for the latest Sports News.
