Takapuna Grammar School has a long history of sporting achievements. From Burt Sutcliffe, Danny Morrison, Paul Snow-Hansen, Jacko Gill to Eliza McCartney, many well known sports persons have walked our corridors and gained their education at our school going onto great things in sport and in their daily lives.

Our school holds to ‘Aspiring to Personal Excellence’ for every student that enters our gate and this not only includes academically but also on and off  the sports field. There is proven benefit to engaging youth in physical activity and sport during their teens and our school has a particular focus on developing this area to inspire our students to personal excellence through sports participation. With a new Sports Strategy Plan for 2015-2018, we enter a phase of development and engagement that includes the students, the staff, the community and beyond to ensure all our students benefit  through their engagement with sport. With this in mind, the ASPIRE group was formed in mid 2014 to help assist with this new development. The group was formed to advise, support and strengthen the delivery and running of sport.

The new Strategic Plan talks about the vision for sport including, ‘Takapuna Grammar School is a school where sport really matters’ and the reasons for ‘why sport?’ Through engagement at any level in sport, we aim to equip our students with life skills that lead to personal excellence, improve our students' learning and academic results, strengthen social capital in the school and the community, connect our students to diverse communities and allow our students to be successful in elite sports competition.

As part of this process, ASPIRE have developed a new sports logo to tie all our sports together through consistant branding. The public and our school community will see more and more of the ‘LIONS Takapuna Grammar Sport’ logo on our gear and in our correspondence.

Exciting things are happening at Takapuna Grammar School within sport and we would love to have all our students, parents, staff  and community joining us to help our students excel through their engagement in sport.

Our sports include Adventure Racing, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Cricket, Cycling, Football, Golf, Hockey, Mountain Biking, Netball, Orienteering, Rowing, Rugby, Sailing, Skiing/Snowboarding, Squash, Surfing, Swimming, Table Tennis, Tennis, Touch Rugby, Triathlon, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball and Waterpolo.
