Secondary Sport

We place a high value on sport at Arden. Sport encourages and promotes a healthy lifestyle but also plays a major part in an individual’s development of social skills. Participation in sport develops friendships, motivation, sportsmanship and goal setting. Sporting opportunities at Arden help build our school spirit and drive outstanding performances from our talented sporting stars.

The School has an enviable sporting record. In 2013 Arden was awarded the Best Performing School in the Hills Zone Sport Association (HZSA). Arden finished second for Boys Sport in the HZSA competition and second for the Girls Sport in the HZSA competition for 2013. Arden finished third overall as the HZSA Champion School.
