Sport plays a vital role in the holistic nurture of individual pupils from Grade R to Matric. With the core belief that sport cultivates each pupil’s confidence and character through physical and mental incentive, as well as exposure to teamwork and leadership, we encourage pupils to participate in as wide a variety of sports as possible. Through a high standard of coaching and focus on core skills, our children are able to reach their full sporting potential. 

A permanent 2.5 km trail-run track allows pupils to run to their hearts’ desire. 

Sport is a compulsory activity for all pupils in the College phase of the school. St Patrick's College supplies a significant number of sportsmen and sportswomen to the East Griqualand regional teams and many of these pupils compete for places in the Provincial teams.
