We should all feel proud of what is one of the best sporting facilities in Cumbria. The new Sports Centre provides 2 competition sized courts and a truly multi-functional space with the facility for netball, basketball, volleyball, badminton and cricket. Every single pupil will benefit from access to this flagship project and the aspirations it is bound to inspire. Parents will enjoy a hospitality suite with a viewing gallery across Busk and over the interior courts. Particularly so in bad weather!

In recognition of the significant contribution Chris and Sara Hirst made to Sedbergh School in their roles as Headmaster and Senior Mistress it has been agreed that the new Sports Centre should be named in their honour.

The Foundation has been touched by the generosity of the many alumni, parents and friends of the School who have been able to support the Sports Centre appeal. With your help we have been able to raise the £350k funding target including a major gift from a loyal supporter and one generous corporate gift. Thank you to all those involved.
