Independent Schools of the Year 2020Winner of the Sporting Achievement Award in the
Independent Schools of the Year Awards 2020

For children of Prep School age, physical activity is an essential element in supporting growth and development.

We believe that sport is of immense benefit, not just for its own sake in nurturing both teamwork and talent, but it also forms a vital part of a rounded education.

Our pupils play seasonal sports as part of their games timetable, learning important sporting and life skills along the way. All children are given the opportunity to represent the school in competitive fixtures and we often put out more than 30 teams at the same time.


  • Hockey (Girls – Michaelmas term, Boys – Lent term)
  • Rugby (Boys Years 7 and 8 – Michaelmas term, Years 3 to 6 – second half of Michaelmas term)
  • Football (Boys – Michaelmas term, 6 weeks for Years 3 to 6, smaller fixture list for Years 7 and 8)
  • Netball (Girls – Lent term)
  • Cricket  (Boys and Girls – Summer term)
  • Athletics (Boys and Girls – Summer term)
