Developing character and resilience – good for the mind, body and spirit.
More than just sport
Sport has numerous benefits for the pupils at Berkhamsted Boys. As well as recognised health benefits, sport also has emotional and social benefits and is also linked to improved academic performance.
Sport enables our boys to develop a success mindset – encouraging them to be adventurous and motivated, compassionate and resilient – which all helps them develop into remarkable young men.
The impact of school-based sport will never leave the boys, building confidence, developing character and encouraging lifelong participation.
Strive for Excellence
Pupils at Berkhamsted Boys are encouraged to participate in a broad range of sports and physical activity within a competitive and supportive environment. Good sportsmanship is taught so that the boys learn to be compassionate to their opposition while also taking any loss as an opportunity to learn.
They are encouraged to work hard to reach their full potential, improve their performance and strive for excellence.
Specialist Sport Teachers
The Berkhamsted PE Department consists of specialist teachers. We provide expert teaching and coaching, before, during and after school. To assist this programme the school employs a number of external coaches to support our major and minor sport programmes.
