Sport plays an important part in the lives of our pupils. Our teams, for example, compete at the highest levels and regularly produce sportsmen and women who are among the best in the country. A very wide range of sports is available at Glasgow Academy, from hockey and rugby to rock-climbing, squash and shooting. In recent years rowing has become hugely successful, with a large number of Academy rowers representing Great Britain – and we have produced two world champions.
That said, we want to emphasise that sport at The Academy is for everyone. At a time when there is concern about poor levels of fitness among young people, we believe it is important that all our pupils experience the thrill of participating in at least one sport to the best of their ability and have the opportunity in the Senior School to make the most of our new fitness suite, rowing suite and dance facilities.
