Northfield School has been a Sports College for over 16 years and during this time has developed a wide range of sports related programmes in healthy life styles, sport participation, student leadership, coaching, and exam qualifications. Since Sports College status the PE department has developed and introduced a range of academic qualifications to suit the needs of all the students. These include GCSE PE and BTEC Dance.

It is our aim to equip every student with the skills, confidence and knowledge to become independent, healthy and successful young adults.


Northfield has supported and coached students to the highest levels in sport over a number of years. From sprinter Richard Kilty, the World indoor 60m champion to Table Tennis Champions including Joe Clark who is currently  ranked number 1 in England.

Mr Alderson, PE teacher and Football Coach, was recently appointed as the English Schools FA U18 assistant manager for 2018.
