The P. E. faculty organise and coach a host of sports teams that are consistently successful in local competitions, as well as running an annual sports day and a wide variety of lunch time activities throughout the year.

The Physical Education department is extremely successful and is well known in the Milton Keynes area for sport. All sports teams compete on the district level and the school also enters county competitions in the following sports: football, basketball, cricket, netball and badminton. Also the school is represented at national level at badminton, basketball and football.

Students are expected to take an active part in all aspects of the programme. The extra-curricular programme is extensive.

All students from year 7 to 11 receive 2 hours of Physical Education a week. Students have the opportunity to participate in sport during lunchtime and also via the Inter-House programme. The school operates over 30 sports teams at all ages.

Physical Education and social development are encouraged through participation in a variety of team games and individual sports and activities.

An extensive extra-curricular programme complements the core curriculum.
At the end of each year the school's sporting success is celebrated with the annual colours assembly. Colours are rewarded for outstanding contribution to both curricular and extra-curricular activities.
