As well as curricular Physical Education, our pupils have the choice of a variety of extra curricular sports.
Sport at Robert Gordon’s College gives pupils of all ages the opportunity to participate and experience a wide variety of activities that are linked to our historical sporting traditions, as well as embracing new activities which broaden every pupil's experience of sport. We also value our performance sports which give all pupils the chance to excel and push themselves, both individually or as part of a team. Both participation and performance are encouraged through our diverse Games and extracurricular programme which caters for all ages and levels within both Junior and Senior Schools. We feel strongly that sport is beneficial in developing tactical awareness skills and teamwork and is also an opportunity to develop social skills, improve fitness and have fun with pupils from other schools and countries.
On Saturday morning Countesswells is a hive of activity for school teams of all ages and the Parents Association along with Inspire Catering provide meals and refreshments for visiting teams, spectators and the Gordon’s community. It is a venue that needs to be visited, particularly on a match day, to experience the life and energy that our pupils enjoy.
