The Buckswood Sports Department is focused on nurturing talent and providing opportunities for all. The sporting set up at Buckswood is inclined to promote core seasonal sports whilst providing optional extra’s. Our extensive fixture list provides our students with competitive and successful environments on a weekly basis, including weekends.
At Buckswood each pupil is affiliated to at least one sports team per term; pupils will train in many sports across the curriculum within lessons and squad training sessions. Traditionally, sports in each term will change giving pupils the opportunity to participate in as many sports as possible, students will have the opportunity to represent the school regularly within Inter-school fixtures and County tournaments.

We believe it is invaluable to link up our talented athletes with all the local clubs in the area up to county level, therefore, we encourage evening and weekend participation. Each term we set up a number of fixtures against local schools, these are not just for our most talented athletes as we encourage as many pupils as we can to participate. Our sporting programme encourages team spirit, a winning mentality alongside an enhanced social life and good health – perfect preparation for life outside of Buckswood!!
With our International links we enjoy taking our local and International talented athletes to visit neighbouring countries to compete and for leisure; this year alone we will visit Georgia, Holland, Italy, Swaziland and Spain.
