Welcome to the home of Huish Sport, here you will find something for everyone!

You can stay active and have fun with our social sports, or if sport is your passion we can help you develop into a top sportsperson as you compete as part of our highly successful Green Army! Each year, both teams and individuals achieve significant success and recognition at county, regional and national level.

Whatever you choose to study, your timetable can be designed to allow you to participate in Huish Sport activities within your College day. If you are selected for a team, you will find that the fixture programme is predominantly on Wednesday afternoons where you will represent Huish in matches against Colleges from across the country.

The main team sports we offer are Football, Rugby, Basketball, Netball and Hockey. To find out more about all our sports visit our Sports page. To find out more about our partnerships and academies please see below.  Huish will also work to support athletes who compete in alternative sports outside of Huish.

We work closely with Bristol Bears to deliver a Rugby programme suitable for all abilities and specifically for players with ambition to play at the highest levels.

Bears Staff support the programme on a daily basis and liaise closely with our staff to facilitate a high-quality rugby and athletic development schedule that meets the demands of an ambitious academic institution.

This collaboration provides an enjoyable and challenging environment for players on the Premiership Academy Pathway. We attract and continue to develop a large number of Junior Academy players and support those that continue in the Bears pathway post-16.


Social Sport

If you want to play sport just for fun you will find plenty of activities you can try without prior experience and without commitment. 

Our social sports include yoga, table tennis, boccia, 3v3 basketball, badminton, volleyball and self defence classes, to name just a few.

These fun sessions can be a great way to fill gaps in your timetable, meet new people and to stay active. Drop by the Sycamore Sports Hall for the latest timetable or to suggest what you would like to see on offer.
