Sports trials – Wednesday 30th January

Boys are invited to apply for a sports award if they show outstanding potential in at least one of the main school sports: rugby, soccer, cricket or rowing.

The sports trials are designed to test the candidate’s fitness, attitude and abilities across a range of activities.
