Hornby High School has a proud sports record at local and national level. We encourage students to participate in a wide range of activities outside the classroom. These activities develop physical, mental and social skills. They build students' self-esteem and confidence and this is often reflected in greater effort and achievement in the classroom.
The programme caters for a wide range of sporting activities and we encourage all students to participate in a school team. The school has a Sport Co-ordinator who organises teams to compete in the Canterbury Secondary Schools competition.
Most sports are played on a Wednesday afternoon and students at all levels have the opportunity to participate in all sporting activities. We offer a varied and comprehensive range of co-curricular experiences for our students: Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Chess, Cricket, Volleyball, Chess, Indoor Cricket, Netball, Rugby, Rugby League, Smallbore Rifle Shooting, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Touch Rugby and Volleyball.
