Sport

Sport figures prominently in Pimlico's extra-curricular offerings. Sport is a valued part of Pimlico and students are encouraged to become involved. The school has representative sporting teams across a wide range of sports with numerous opportunities for students to excel in their chosen fields. The school has a long and successful record in sport, particularly athletics.
