Sport at Howick College is an integral part of a student's development, and aims to reinforce the school's supportive learning environment, and our values of courtesy, commitment and citizenship.

 

Our sport programme caters for all abilities, whether the students are playing sport socially with their friends, or as a member of one of our nationally successful sports teams such as Sevens, Rowing or Underwater Hockey.

 

Sport has a positive impact on young people's physical health and international evidence suggests that increased participation in sport and physical activity can lead to improved academic and social outcomes, benefiting students, schools and communities. This is why Howick College is a founding school in the implementation of the Sport in Education project (SIE).
