Outstanding sportsmanship! A credit to the school, your parents and yourselves. Well done.

At Bishop Henderson we feel passionate about developing outstanding sportsmanship. Our ‘Sporting Spirits’ initiative celebrates and promotes the behaviours, qualities and interpersonal skills of an outstanding sportsman through reflecting on sporting experiences and attitudes. The six ‘Sporting Spirit’ values of passion, belief, respect, honesty, determination and teamwork are central to developing rounded individuals both on and off the sports field.


Sport plays a very important part in the life of the school. As active members of the Tone School Sport Partnership children of a variety of ages have numerous opportunities to take part in festivals and competitions run at venues throughout Taunton, these include:


Football Hockey
Netball Multi- Sports
Tag Rugby Tennis
Kwik Cricket Invasion Games
Swimming Striking and Fielding Games
Rounders Outdoor Education



All these activities are thoroughly enjoyed by the pupils and offer valuable introductions to development of sports skills.
