Activities

    We encourage all pupils to try new skills and activities, not only for the sense of well-being, achievement and fun they bring, but also because they facilitate the development of many life skills.

    We have an extensive extra-curricular programme in the Prep School which offers pupils the opportunity to sample a variety of sports, outdoor activities, play in musical ensembles and learn new creative skills.

    Outdoor Education

    Our pupils are able to experience a range of outdoor pursuits, including training for local triathlons, kayaking and sailing on a local lake and orienteering.

    In their final year, Year 8 pupils have the opportunity to go hill-walking in Snowdonia, and also take part in a Leavers’ Challenge, where they hike across the South Downs for three days, camping overnight.

    Show Jumping

    Hurst has a close relationship with the world-class equestrian showground at Hickstead, where we hold our own National Schools and Pony Clubs Championships in September - our own show jumping teams take part in this event, as well as other national and NSEA riding events.
