Berkhamsted named in top 10 schools for sport
Berkhamsted School has been named as one of Britain’s most successful independent schools in sport.
School Sport Magazine ranked Berkhamsted 10th based on performances across 20 major sports in 2016, the only school in Hertfordshire to make it into the top 30.
Berkhamsted’s pedigree within the national standings for sport derives from five fully deserved national titles in Lacrosse and Netball together with consistently strong performances in an array of activities such as Rugby, Football and Cricket.
Led by Directors of Sport David Gibson (Boys’ Sport) and Jo Vila (Girls’ Sport) the School Sports department said “Berkhamsted Sport is flourishing and is undoubtedly achieving its biggest successes within the last decade.
“Our focus is not just on titles and silverware. Our approach is to enthuse, motivate, inspire and instil a love of sport for every participant at Berkhamsted School. Teachers, support and ground staff have worked tirelessly to give our pupils the most positive experience of physical activity possible throughout 2016.”
