All our Preparatory School children benefit from a wide and balanced physical education and sports programme.
Led by our dedicated Prep sports department every pupil has 2 games sessions a week, a fixtures afternoon and a dedicated PE lesson. There is also the opportunity to take part in sports clubs before, during and after school and Saturday afternoon fixtures. PE lessons are taught by our highly qualified PE trained staff. In addition, games lessons are taught by both Prep and Senior school staff, many of whom have played professionally and are assisted by professional sports coaches.
From developing skills and learning about health and fitness, aesthetic movement to improving performance, our PE and games curriculum offers the opportunity to participate and compete in a broad range of sports. Using our outstanding facilities, the small class sizes allow our children to benefit from specialised individual coaching. The departments’ ethos and aims are that all pupils are given the opportunities to reach their own level of ‘individual excellence’. As a school, we are proud that every pupil will represent the school in all of their main sports. This will be the case in the majority of their fixture afternoons.
Sports available include rugby, hockey, netball, cricket, tennis, table tennis, swimming, football, squash, rounders, cross country and athletics. The school offers sports tours, domestically and in Europe, for many sports.
Whether your child is representing the school by competing in regional, county or national competitions, or indulging in a little healthy in-house rivalry with house competitions, they’ll learn the importance of working as a team to achieve outstanding results and have fun!
