  • Gymnastics
  • Badminton
  • Table Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Athletics
  • Tennis
  • Cricket


We currently run two clubs on Fridays  -  Fencing and Handball.  Both these clubs are run by external coaches and therefore there is an additional charge to participate.

The fencing club is run by Valerijs Scipanov (Head Coach of Chester Fencing Club) every Friday after school. The team participate in the Chester Schools Fencing League which takes place at schools in the Chester and District area. Tarporley are the current District Fencing Champions!

School Teams

We operate school teams that compete in local competitions in many sports including football, netball, handball, hockey, rugby, athletics, tennis, table tennis, basketball, handball, fencing and badminton. Many of our successful teams go on to compete at county and regional competitions.

Inter-tutor competition

All students have the opportunity to represent their tutor group in many sporting events and competitions across the school year. These tournaments culminate in Sports Day in June.

Sandstone Sports Association

Every Thursday evening our partner Primary Schools from the Sandstone Partnership participate in a sporting event or competition based at the high school. The Sandstone Sports Association run events for Reception age students through to Year 6. The events are organised and run by the Tarporley High School P.E. department with the support of our secondary school Sports Leaders as volunteers, officials and scorers.

Sports Presentation Evening

Students efforts are celebrated at our annual Sports Presentation Evening. This is an opportunity for the PE department to review the year in sport in the presence of students and parents.  Awards include Players of the Year in all sports, captain of the year, leader of the year and the much coveted Sports Personality of the Year Award.
