Sport is a key part of life at Peter Symonds for many students. As a college, we have a long sporting history and regularly achieve success in league, cup, county and national competitions. However, if you enjoy your sport but do not want to play within a college team, you can pick up one of our recreational sports.
The department has excellent facilities that include a modern sports hall, fitness suite and pavilion. It also has excellent playing fields and tennis courts, as well as the use of a local swimming pool and astro-turf pitch.
A major achievement during the last sports season was success in the Association of Colleges National Championships in Newcastle April 2016. 91 Students from PSC represented the South East in this pinnacle event of sporting achievement for colleges.
