In addition to regular physical and health education classes there are many opportunities for Glenlyon Norfolk School students to become involved with sport.

The athletic program at the Junior School strives to teach the values of good health and physical conditioning, as well as those of team play, self-sacrifice, and sportsmanship. Each student (Grades 2 to 5) has an opportunity to participate at a level consistent with their age, strength and skill. Intra-mural as well as interschool opportunities are available to every student.

At the Middle School, our athletics program is all about opportunity and participation. All students are afforded the chance to participate in whichever sports activities they wish to try and are strongly encouraged to take part in activities they haven’t attempted before.

For a small school, GNS offers a stellar Senior School athletics program, as proven by the collection of City, Island, Provincial, and National banners that decorate the walls of the Gudewill Gym. Our main sports for boys are soccer, rugby, and basketball, and for girls, soccer, field hockey, and volleyball. Co-ed teams include golf, track, cross-country running, ultimate, rowing, and tennis.

Other sports are encouraged and supported to the best of our ability. The goal for these sports is to be competitive at the local and Island level, though higher aspirations are encouraged and often achieved. This includes, but is not limited to, Rowing, Volleyball, Badminton and Ultimate.
