Sport and PE

Modern and well-equipped facilities are the foundation of Sheffield High School’s tradition of sporting excellence. All-weather pitches cater for outdoor sports like hockey and tennis, while the School’s extensive sports complex provides state-of-the-art indoor accommodation for basketball, trampolining and dance.

We value the music that is taught in the curriculum and, in addition, there are numerous musical activities which enrich pupils' lives: three choirs, concert bands, swing bands, two orchestras, a string training group and flute group. We have 14 visiting instrumental teachers and lessons can be arranged and examinations taken in school.
