SBSJ Water Polo


This is our 8th year competing in Water Polo at National level, in competitions such as the English School Championships where we travel all-round the country, to which we have reached a total of 11 National Finals in various age groups.

In 2017-18 our U15 'mixed team' managed to reach the English Schools Championship National Final for the first time in history, which includes back in the days of Cardinal Hinsley/Yorkshire Martyrs and St Bede's Catholic Grammar School. We managed a 6th place finish which ranks us 6th in the whole country.

Our U13 and U18 Girls team also reached the English Schools National Final, both placing 4th making them 4th best in the whole country.

As well as National honours, our U18 boys team came 1st in the Yorkshire Schools Championships.

Water Polo has become a big part of St Bede's and St Joseph's Catholic College and when you consider when we first started Water Polo 8 years ago we only had 15 boys taking part. Now we have over 50 boys and 30 girls!

We offer 14 training sessions a week over the two sites at various age groups. 

It’s not all work! The whole Water Polo squad do take time out for a meal and a get together at the Toby Carvery several times a year.

If you are interested in joining the teams or would like more information please contact Mr M Wright:
