“Sport provides the opportunity to learn about oneself, especially under pressure; learn about others – be they team mates or opponents. Sport can also be a great release, allowing pupils to go back into the classroom and work that bit harder, smarter and even with different angles and insights”. Brendan French, Director of Sport Falcon College
Sport plays a central role in the College’s endeavour to support and nurture individual pupils with diverse needs. We believe sport develops pupils’ confidence and resilience through physical, technical and mental stimulation, as well as exposure to teamwork and leadership opportunities.
At the core of our games program is a team-sports ethos, promoting physical health and social interaction and providing every pupil with the opportunity to represent the school. Pupils are guided through their sports choices by experienced tutors and coaches. Every pupil engages in a major sport while sampling other sports and activities. This is an unrivalled offer, delivered by enthusiastic and skilled tutors and coaches.
Many of our pupils excel at sport – Falcon is home to nearly 15 international representatives at any one time and had more National rugby representatives in 2014 and 2015 than any other school. We are very proud of our record as a prominent school for sport.
Our Fantastic facilities, along with our unique blend of coaching, enable us to offer an environment increasingly recognised the world over.
Offered sports are:
Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, Athletics, Water polo, Squash, Basket ball, Soccer, Tennis, Mountain Biking, Swimming, Cross country and Golf.
