At Durham Trinity School & Sports College we believe that where possible and appropriate our pupils should be able to access competitive sporting activities. This may come in the form of taking part in football tournaments, athletics, swimming, cross country, Panathlon, Motor Activity Training Promame (MATP), Boccia and a host of other activities. We have had success in inter school, county and national level competitions in the past year and we will be aiming for the same again this year. The School Games remains a key element of our competitive work and we promote the values of the School Games.
In this section you will be able to see what competitions our pupils have been taking part in, a gallery showing them in action and any results.
