Sport forms an integral part of Glenwood’s holistic approach to education. Alongside academics, culture and environmental awareness, sport aids in the moulding of boys into fine young gentlemen. Sport is not about the elite athlete but mass participation as well. Glenwood has high levels of provincial and national representation by our boys.

Sports Offered

Sporting Houses

The original four School Houses were introduced shortly before the end of WW1. It was felt that a system of School Houses should be introduced to increase participation and to grow school spirit. The names selected for these Houses were, and remain to this day, a tribute to four of the School’s Old Boys who gave their lives during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.
