Having been recognised as the 5th best state school for sport by the National School Sport Magazine, Dr Challoner’s Grammar School is proud to present the first stage of a new sports sponsorship programme.

Thanks to the work of our newly formed Parents Sports Strategy Committee, we have reached three year sponsorship agreements across the following sports:

Students and sponsors - Savills for football
Students and sponsors - Luker Rowe for rugby
Students and sponsors - Personal Career Management for hockey
Students and sponsors - Lennons for cricket

The PE Team are always keen to increase the range of activities across all sports to increase participation levels. And thanks to the influence of the parents committee, we have already greatly improved communication with parents as well as introducing mountain biking and fencing to the extra-curricular programme.

John Deadman, Director of Sport, says 'The extra funding will be used not just to supply team kits for all sports, but to supplement extra coaching which will improve the quality of our major team sports as well as the numbers of boys involved. Our aim is to give every boy that wishes to an opportunity to play competitive sport, i.e. represent at least one school team each year'.

‘Stage two’ of the sponsorship programme will involve finding sponsors for our other successful team sports such as basketball, athletics & cross country, swimming, table tennis, badminton, squash and tennis.
