Children are given a broad and balanced programme of Physical Education activities as part of the curriculum. Those selected for teams practice and play their matches outside the timetabled lessons. The school takes part in sports fixtures with other local schools.

The main competitive sports are football, netball, hockey, swimming and athletics. Inter-House sports competitions take place throughout the year and are sources of great excitement for the children. It is the school policy that all children in Year 6 will be offered the opportunity to represent the school on the sports field. The school feels competitive sports, played in the right spirit, can help children develop leadership and team skills and learn how to accept defeat and victory with dignity. Parents are encouraged to watch our sports fixtures.

Hillview School also hosts a day-long annual Triathlon. Many people come to participate and it is open to all ages. Prizes are awarded to the winners in the various categories.
