At Guildford Grammar School, we are passionate about sport. With breadth of opportunity at all levels, we believe that co-curricular sport and physical activity is part of a balanced education and students’ everyday lives.
Students are engaged in sports from the very beginning of their journey, and this is supported across the whole school with world-class sports facilities, experienced coaching staff and a range of competitive opportunities.
Preparatory Students in Year 5-6 participate in sport twice a week and all Senior Students participate in sport three times a week with the opportunity to represent the School in their chosen sport. Students can pursue personal excellence in our sports program and are empowered to choose their own sport. We provide opportunities to try new things in a safe and supportive environment that champions our values of sportsmanship, community, teamwork and service.
All students from Year 4-12 are required to take part in both a winter and summer sport and Senior School students are encouraged to take part in the co-educational Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) competitions and interschool carnivals. Preparatory students also take part in the Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA) competitions.
PSA – then and now
As a founding member of the Public Schools Association (PSA) competition, Guildford Grammar School participates in a range of interschool sporting events. Many of the competitions date back more than a century and, although fiercely contested, are still played in the same spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship. To this day, the Association is regarded as WA’s pre-eminent group of independent schools – renowned for its high quality of competition.
The Senior School girls’ competitive and participation program includes:
- Beach Volleyball
- Cross Country
- Movement and Wellness
- Touch Rugby
The Senior School boys’ PSA program includes:
- Cross Country
- Water Polo
Our Senior School girls’ program continues to evolve based on student preference and feedback. We strive to offer the best available competition in the girls’ chosen sports and compete in sports across the year.
