Sport

Our primary aim is for pupils to enjoy sport at whatever level they choose to play. Over twenty sports are on offer, and a majority of pupils will represent the school in inter-school fixtures.

Sports facilities are excellent, centred on The Recreation Centre at Blore’s, the outdoor playing fields at Birley’s, and Westbere Lake so the pupils have the opportunity to flourish in whatever sport they choose.

We strive to provide opportunities for pupils at both elite and participatory levels. We offer an element of choice in the games programme that gets wider as pupils progress through the school. Many of our pupils go on to represent their county, their region and even their country. We currently have national representatives in Fencing, Hockey, Rugby, Shooting, Skiing and Table Tennis.

The sports programme promotes key educational values that include fitness and a healthy lifestyle. We also encourage pupils to adopt a balanced approach towards winning and losing, both as an individual and as part of a team.

A strong coaching structure exists across all sports, and the pupils are very fortunate to be coached by the likes of Jen Wilson former South African international hockey player and triple Olympian, Mark Ealham and Susie Rowe former England international cricketers, and Jon Williamson England Rowing team manager at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Sports Scholarships are available for particularly talented individuals. 

The school has a Code of Conduct for pupils and parents.

Further information about Sport can be found in our Sports brochure.

Excellence Programme

In 2010 the School introduced a Sports Excellence Programme. This aims to raise the standard of sporting performance and encourage excellence in all sporting activities. The programme is offered to Sports Scholars and others who display enthusiasm, commitment and potential. Those selected to be part of the programme are able to take advantage of knowledge and experience from elite training spheres.

The programme is led by triple Olympian and International hockey player Jen Wilson, supported by other specialist members of the PE and Sports staff. Our programme has proved to be a great success with many of our current Sports Scholars excelling at international level.
