Sport

Developing character and resilience – good for the mind, body and spirit.

As well as the physical health benefits of Sport, we see our children benefiting from competition, problem-solving and improved wellbeing through participation in Sport.

Sport encourages our children to become ambitious and driven, yet also tempered with compassion as we guide them to think about their opposition, teammates and how to win or lose gracefully. In the supportive environment that we create losing encourages learning.

We offer a diverse and challenging Sports programme. From the core skills of Rugby, Football, Netball, Swimming, Lacrosse and Cricket, to Eton Fives, Cross Country and Athletics, we seek to challenge our pupils both physically and mentally as they aim high to achieve their best.

Healthy competition

Healthy competition provides our pupils with motivation and ambition, teaching children to aim high with integrity on the sporting field and in the classroom. This competition also boosts their self-esteem and engagement, allowing them to address their own strengths and weaknesses.

Friendly competition also nurtures an inquisitive and innovative mind, with our children practising to find a solution. In turn, this builds persistence and resilience.

Although we encourage competition, we still remain clear with our primary aim for our pupils – participation and enjoyment comes first. Pupils will only participate in fixtures if we feel they are able to do so and that it will impact positively on their development.

Events and Fixtures

We are fortunate to compete in many sporting events, ranging from Inter-House competitions to Regional and National finals. Our games programme allows our pupils to participate in their first competitive matches within games session, which then progresses onto fixtures against other schools.

Inter-House sporting events

Every pupil is provided with three opportunities per term to participate in our extremely popular Inter-House sporting events. In taking part in these Sports events the children benefit from team spirit and teamwork experience in their Houses and the events are supported by both staff and parents.

Value added is the name of the game: most enter the nursery at national standard, but by year 6 the vast majority are well beyond it, with many of them significantly above.

Pupils develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and resilience to a mature level, encouraged by the school’s focus on perseverance.
