Sport

Sport is a vital part of life at the Junior School. It keeps our students healthy, allows them to let off steam, teaches them how to be part of a team, to lead, to practise, to persevere when it’s tough, and to celebrate every success.

We focus on rugby, football, hockey, cricket, swimming, netball and gym in lessons; in our co-curriculum students can also take part in judo, basketball, fencing, horse riding and tennis.
