The PE and Games Programme
We aim to discover and develop the sporting and athletic potential within every boy, as part of a balanced and challenging programme.
We provide a sports and physical education curriculum that has a positive influence on all ages and abilities.
We aim to develop every boy’s interest in sport from aspiring professionals to those for whom sport is just part of a healthy lifestyle
Our programme not only develops the physical stamina, co-ordination and skills of the boys but also develops team spirit, honourable sportsmanship, winning with humility and losing with dignity.
We offer a choice of over fifteen sports. We determinedly focus on team sports, providing pupils with many opportunities to represent their House and ultimately the School in prestigious fixtures against other institutions
Cricket, hockey, football and swimming are played seasonally and tennis, squash, table-tennis, badminton, and basketball are played through the year. Athletics, gymnastics and general physical training are also popular among the boys. Boxing and marathon running are sports which see the participation of every single medically fit boy of the school.
Facilities and Coaching
Our long tradition of sporting excellence gives us the experience required to maximise every pupil’s potential, regardless of the level of sport that they play.
The school has excellent playing fields and tracks, courts, a shooting range, a swimming pool and diving area, a gymnasium and facilities for indoor sports. The PTIs and coaches are specialists often national-level players who supervise, coach and train the boys.
This level of support guarantees the best possible environment for every pupil to develop their skills
Each sporting season culminates with an inter-house and then an inter-school tournament attended by the best teams of the region. The Victor Ludorum is awarded in most sports and colours are awarded for high achievers at the end of the year. Full school blazers and sashes are awarded to champions who display skills of a high standard.
