Weekly competitive matches take place against other schools and every pupil is selected to represent the School at least once per term. We field multiple teams at different age groups, thereby giving plenty of occasions for pupils to regularly develop their skills.

We boast a strong competitive record but also focus on every child's enjoyment of sport. We celebrate successes but also progresses made, no matter the outcome of an individual fixture. The old-fashioned notion of ‘sportsmanship’ is extremely important to us and we ensure that our teams conduct themselves with dignity at all times
Achievements are recognised at all levels with awards for endeavour and most improved sitting alongside merit and most outstanding participants.
See the Results page for recent scores.
There are weekly clubs for all the major sports giving pupils further opportunities to develop their personal skills and prepare for fixtures. In addition, a number of other sports and physical activities are offered, including judo, ballet and country dancing.
Special events also take place allowing pupils to experience more unusual sports: recently we have held a Greek Olympics day and a PE Focus Week which included ultimate frisbee, skipping and taekwondo.
See the Trips, Clubs and Activities page for more information.
Inter-house fixtures for all the main sports take place throughout the year contributing to the overall House Points system. A special cross-country competition, called the Reindeer Race, also takes place just before Christmas in which all pupils participate.
In the summer term, the annual Sports Day is held where every pupil participates in at least two individual running races, one field event and the full-House relay. This ensures all pupils contribute to the House system throughout the year in a variety of sporting ways, helping to develop sportsmanship, teamwork and camaraderie.
