All students in Years 7-10 engage in a weekly sport activity. For Years 11 and 12, sport is optional, although students must provide evidence of a regular exercise program.

Mosman High School offers a variety of sports, catering for a wide range of interest and ability. Some are only offered in summer, others only in winter.
