We are proud of our sporting tradition at Great Crosby. Our teams take part in local leagues and competitions with regular success.
During the year we train and have teams for football, swimming, cross-country, netball, athletics, rugby, rounders and cricket.
In lessons, the children also practise dance and gymnastics skills, hockey, basketball and lacrosse. Y3 have weekly swimming sessions at Merchant Taylors’ swimming pool.

We are very proud of Louis in Y4 who was our only representative in the Merseyside Schools Under 13s Table Tennis Championships. Louis won his first and second round matches in straight sets, to reach the semi-finals. He was beaten to a place in the individual finals by a much older and more experienced player, but it was a great effort.

Year 4 took part in and won the local Sports Hall Games at Chesterfield High.
In recent years we have represented Sefton in the Merseyside Youth Games for athletics and swimming.
Our current Y3 have won consecutive Everton in the Community finals at GoodisonPark, while they were in both Y1 and Y2. They firstly had to win two qualifying tournaments each time. Our current Y2 won the Y1 final last year as well.
