A varied well-coached programme of sport is an integral element of a Hutchesons’ education. All pupils enjoy physical education as part of the curriculum under the leadership of outstanding sportsmen and women, some of whom are internationalists and Olympians themselves.


Rugby & Hockey


Our 1st XV rugby and 1st XI hockey teams are among the nation’s best and most Hutchesonians enjoy sport to a very high level.

Many Hutchesons’ pupils are selected to represent their country at school level and there is also the opportunity for national and international travel with our sport tours, with the rugby team travelling to South Africa in 2019.

Hutchie Team Spirit


Team spirit is also alive and well at Hutchesons’ with rugby teams and hockey teams playing every Saturday morning in matches against other schools throughout Scotland. These matches have a great atmosphere and are well supported by Hutchie families, former pupils and staff. In later years there are several opportunities for friendly staff, pupil and former pupil challenge matches in golf, hockey and rugby

Athletics


Athletics and cross-country running have been particular strengths in recent years across all age groups, with Hutchesons’ boys and girls dominating national competitions.

Choice to Flourish & Achieve


Pupils can also enjoy a wide range of activities including cricket, football, netball, athletics, rowing, tennis, golf and cross-country.

Curling, volleyball, badminton, aerobics and rock climbing are other alternatives. In the last year our pupils have represented Scotland in hockey, rowing, athletics, squash and karate.

 

Facilities to Flourish & Achieve


The excellent facilities at the secondary school include the sports hall, a well provisioned gym, a new world-class track and astro-turf hockey pitch.

There are also Hutchesons’ substantial playing fields at Auldhouse and the use of the adjacent Clydesdale Cricket Club and tennis courts at Titwood.
