PE has always held an important position on our schools curriculum in our school. We deliver a broad balanced inclusive PE Programme which offers all pupils a wide variety of sporting activities and gives them access to great opportunities to develop their personal, social and creative skills. It also allows all pupils the opportunity to express themselves and build their self-esteem while helping pupils gain competence and confidence in a range of physical activities which will hopefully encourage life-time involvement in an active lifestyle.

Extracurricular activities have always played a major role in our school; in particular we have a province wide reputation for our contribution to and success at Gaelic Games. Perhaps our proudest moment was when our footballers achieved county, provincial and national success and our Camogs achieved an Ulster title. The U16 Footballers became the smallest vocational school in Ireland to win the U16 All Ireland Vocational Schools title.

Our students are also encouraged to participate and compete in a wide range of sporting activities such as: netball, hurling, cross-country running, orienteering, golf, hill walking and most recently horse riding.
