Sporting Life at Solway College

With its extensive grounds incorporating playing fields, courts, swimming pool and other facilities, Solway College is well placed to provide active girls and young women with all the challenge they need.

Participation in sporting and physical education activities is compulsory for all students with an emphasis on "personal best". All students are expected to participate to the best of their ability and to "give it a go".

School mini-vans driven by our hostel staff will transport hostel students to and from sporting fixtures held off-site. This enables boarders to make the most of the sports opportunities available to them.

Some of the areas in which Solway students currently participate include but are not limited to:

  • Netball
  • Soccer
  • Hockey
  • Dragon Boating
  • Waka Ama
