Wentworth Primary views sport as an integral part of school life and aims to provide students with a number of sporting programmes. These programmes range from school sports, inter-school sports and club sporting activities.
All school sporting programmes are organised and, where possible, coached by members of the teaching staff or senior Wentworth College students. This helps to develop respect and a sense of community between coaches and students.
