We have an impressive sporting reputation here at NTC.
Our extensive sporting facilities, sports academies and high calibre of specialist coaches support each individual student to follow their sporting ambition and lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
We pride ourselves on our ‘Sports for All’ ethos, stressing that boys don’t have to be an elite athlete to get the most out of the sporting opportunities here at NTC. That’s because sport not only develops students’ physical skills and abilities, but also the personal qualities of teamwork, commitment, resilience and determination.
Beyond their PE lessons, boys are encouraged to take part in clubs and teams after school, including football, basketball, rugby, athletics and cricket. Team players have excellent fixture lists to represent NTC, competing against other schools at District, County and even National level. Many individuals also go on to represent the District, County and National teams.
A series of community competitions underpins our ethos to involve every student; and trips are arranged to major sporting events throughout the year. The PE Department also aim to run at least one residential trip each year, providing students with the opportunity to enjoy adventurous outdoor activities, developing team building and problem solving skills, and overcoming fears as they are presented with challenges that place them out of their comfort zones.
We have exceptional indoor and outdoor facilities, including a large sports hall, rock climbing wall, fully equipped gym and football pitches. Some of our specialist coaches are ex-professionals such as Mr Lorraine, footballer and ex Ebsfleet FC Captain. We have gained national recognition for our sports offer by the awarding of a Sportsmark as well as the Silver Award from the School Games Mark.
