Opportunities further afield

At Buckswood our school motto is ‘we prepare for life’ and part of our approach is to give our students as much real world experience as possible. Our transport department racks up hundreds of miles every year, with our three coaches and five mini buses travelling all over the UK and further afield. Many of those miles are for the Sports Departments…


In the Girls Sports Department you will find squads playing competitive matches both at home and away, and various trips and tours to universities and training grounds to see the professional world of sports in action and raising awareness of career paths.


Here are a few examples of our ever-growing portfolio of opportunities for Girls Sports at Buckswood.


  • Netball tour. Every year the Girls Sports Department hit the road on a Netball tour. Last year saw the squad travel to Shropshire for the weekend (via Cadbury’s World chocolate wonderland) for a national Netball tournament combined with team building activities including laser quest, zorbing, abseiling, high ropes assault course to truly test the girls.


  • Trips to go and see Super League and international Netball fixtures, the nearest club is Surry Storm.


  • Trips to go and see the Chelsea Football Club Women’s team training ground.


  • Trips to universities to see Sports Degrees in action and find out what career options there are out there.
