You’ll enjoy the way SPORT IS FOR ALL at Wakefield Girls’.

We encourage girls to wear the crest and live our values and this philosophy has helped the school to develop an enviable reputation for sporting excellence, with individual and team successes regionally and nationally in athletics, netball, hockey and indoor cricket.  As much as we celebrate success, we value that sport is for all, whatever the standard.  Through sport, we see teamwork, collaboration, stamina and friendships grow.

Winning isn’t everything. Getting everyone involved is everything.

Sport at Wakefield Girls’ is about the joy of being part of a team, learning about leadership, courage and resilience, building an appreciation of fair play, developing a healthy, active lifestyle and giving everyone the freedom to discover and play their favourite sports. After all, the best sportspeople in the world never knew what they were good at, until they gave it a go.

We give all interested students the opportunity to join a team, develop their skill set and play in both friendly and competitive fixtures.  Every three years, we compete overseas in a Sports Tour.
