PE & Games
Our children are encouraged to be fit and active throughout their time at our Prep School. They enjoy a programme of weekly PE lessons, Games lessons twice a week and inter-House competitions. Our coaches instil best sporting practice in training sessions using the facilities that we have available in the school’s grounds. These include a 9-hole course, a covered swimming pool, tennis courts, an all-weather Astroturf pitch, athletics track, a range of pitches, cricket nets and netball courts.
We believe collaboration, empathy, independence and commitment are key life skills, and team sports provide our children with the opportunity to develop in safe, yet challenging situations. Our team sports include rugby, hockey, netball, cricket and football and they are a key part of our school’s culture because they create an environment where our children are proud of their school, committed to each other and enjoy the experiences and opportunities that they can create when children work together.
We also provide for those who enjoy competing on their own in sports such as golf, athletics, tennis, cross country, swimming, gymnastics and dance. These sports help test character and enable our children to develop their concentration skills and the ability to analyse and reflect on personal performance so that progress can be made. Many of our children find a sport for life-long participation, always competing against themselves, which allows for progression and confidence to be gained.
Our outdoor adventure activities, such as sailing and skiing, enable our children to build a variety of skills that will help them better understand themselves and test personal boundaries in a challenging, yet calculated environment.
