Sport in the Prep School

From a young age, we endeavour to foster determination, confidence, passion, respect and teamwork through sport. Our generous sports facilities include a full-size multi-purpose astro-turf, football and rugby pitches, four netball/tennis courts, a 25-metre swimming pool, indoor sports hall and cricket nets and green. 

Our goal is to encourage a lifetime love and appreciation of sport and physical activity through a broad and exciting curriculum of PE, games and swimming. In addition, there are numerous sports clubs on offer before, during and after school. This provision is complemented further by a busy weekly fixture programme in which every child participates from Years 3 - 6, reflecting our sport for all approach. 

Key competitive sports for both the boys and girls include cross-country, hockey, football, swimming and cricket. Netball, rugby and athletics also feature frequently; our children enjoying a vast number of opportunities on the sporting front. The school is also host to the area ISA junior cross country amongst other smaller events annually and our most able athletes in each sport compete in various ISA and IAPS tournaments throughout the year.   

In Years 3-6 all pupils have one swimming lesson, one PE lesson and two games lessons per week. The games programme follows a season of approximately eight weeks on each sport. Pre-season training on Friday afternoons takes place from 16:00-17:15 in the preceding season for each sport. The pre-season programme provides our pupils with enhanced skill and tactical awareness ahead of playing fixtures, meaning pupils can gain further confidence in each sport before having to apply it in match situations. 

Our goal is to provide all our teams with the best chance of performing at higher standards. It is expected that all A team players attend these training sessions, but the sessions are open to all that want to develop their skills and tactics in these sports.
