Sport at Gordon's

Sport is an important part of life at Robert Gordon's College. As well as curricular sport, our pupils have the choice of a variety of extra curricular clubs including netball, karate, gymnastics, rugby, basketball, cricket, tennis, swimming, football and ski race training. We have a comprehensive Saturday morning rugby and hockey fixture list.

Whilst beneficial for developing tactical awareness skills and team work this is also an opportunity to develop social skills, improve fitness and have fun with pupils from other schools and countries.  

Our pupils participate in a wide variety of athletics events and use the Sports Village in Aberdeen for field and track events. Pupils compete in a variety of Cross Country races including the Grampian Championships and the Scottish Schools Championships.

Our annual Sports day at Countesswells is always a highlight of the school calendar with all children throughout the school actively involved. Pupils also have the opportunity to participate in the annual Swimming Gala at Hazlehead Pool.
