In Glengormley High School we are proud of the fact that our students are competitive and successful in a wide variety of sports.

 Equally it is important for us to allow as many young people as possible to enjoy competition and achieve success at their own level.  Our most popular competitive sports are; netball, hockey, football, rugby and athletics. Pupils also represent the school at cheerleading, judo, wrestling, aerobics, cross country, dance, girls football and table tennis.
