There’s a strong link between sport and wellbeing, so being active is an important part of life
at Stephen Perse Sixth Form.

We have elite sports teams that win regional and county events, led by sporting leaders. We support individual students in their sporting endeavours outside of school (at local, national and international level). We also have sport for everyone, where the goal is simply to get involved, to make friends, and to look after your physical and mental wellbeing.


All sixth form students engage in sport as part of their enrichment programme. With such a diverse range of sports and activities on offer - from rowing and fencing to yoga and dance - we’re confident that you’ll find one to suit you.

Expert sports leadership

All sports at the Foundation are led by expert sports development teachers including a former Chelsea Academy player, a former England U21 hockey player, an MCC university cricket coach, an England Touch Rugby player and other county and university coaches. We also have partnerships with Cambridge United Football Club, Mavericks Netball Super League team and Anglia Ruskin University to deliver expert coaching and training for our students.

Outstanding sports facilities

We provide excellent sports facilities on campus, including a new award-winning sports and learning building that features a four-court sports hall and a rooftop sports pitch (the only one in
Cambridge!).

We also boast a five-acre, all-weather sports ground on Latham Road and we enjoy using some of the best facilities Cambridge has to offer, including the cricket grounds at Gonville & Caius College.


What’s more, we have linked up with Kelsey Kerridge sports centre to give our students free access to their professional gym. It’s just a short walk or cycle from campus, and you’ll find a wide range of equipment there - from treadmills to free weights - that will help you meet your individual fitness goals.
