Rodillian Sport

At the Rodillian Academy, we pride ourselves on creating an environment in which students are actively encouraged to participate in sport, inspired by the benefits and rewards which subsequently arise through their involvement. Our Physical Education teachers, who specialise in Rugby and Netball are very experienced and deliver a wide range of diverse training sessions, supporting students physical, mental and social development. We strive for sporting success and achievement, but foster a culture of participation and development through regular extra-curricular training sessions across the week.

As our reputation grows across the north and nationally as a sports hub, our fixture list has developed hugely. We now play many of the most prestigious and traditionally successful sports schools in the North of England and these challenges only help to build a true sports culture within the school community.

Our expectations of our students are incredibly high and whilst supporting our students in meeting with the high academic expectations placed upon them, we provide our students within our sports programmes with an abundant access to training and fixtures.

Commitment to the sports programmes once selected for one of our Sports Academies is outlined early on in the student’s journey through the sports pathways at The Rodillian Academy. Once part of the Sports Academy’s, the students will experience Strength and Conditioning Sessions, Breakfast Clubs, Netball or Rugby Applied Resilience (Games) training sessions, Leadership Clinics and Video Analysis Sessions. We have forged strong links with Leeds Beckett and Sheffield Hallam Universities and our link with Loughborough University provides our students with the opportunity to visit truly world class sites of elite preparation, performance and recovery.


Sports Trials 


The Rodillian Academy has now established itself as one of the leading sports schools in the North of England. We offer an outstanding rugby and netball program which includes excellent training facilities, regular competitive fixtures and trips and tours which provide our students with amazing and challenging experiences throughout their school journey. We are proud to provide students with the opportunity to join The Rodillian Academy through the Sports Trials route and join us in Year 7. If you love sport, believe in and demonstrate the values of commitment, integrity and resilience and would like to represent The Rodillian Academy within our very competitive fixture list then please attend our Sports Trials event which usually takes place in September.


All information on the sporting trials for our September 2022 intake will be published on the school website and sent to primary schools at the start of September 2021.
If you have any queries regarding the sports trials or need any further information then please contact the Head of Physical Education [email protected]
