Sport at Queen’s

Queen’s High School offers a variety of individual and team sports. We aim to promote participation and provide the opportunity for all Queen’s High School girls to gain a positive experience from sport.

We believe participation in sport encourages the development of discipline, commitment, positive attitudes, skill acquisition, and taking responsibility as a contributing member of a team.

Throughout the year there are many whole-school events that the Sports Department organises. These include the school athletics day, the inter-house cross country, and school swimming sports.
