Sport plays a very important part of a child’s development, helping them to attain motor skills and providing a venue outside the classroom where they can display their talents. The children belong to either Robins or Nightingales. Every term the House Cup is awarded to whichever House has won the most points for effort and achievement. If a child belongs to a House, he or she gains experience in belonging to a group, supporting it with pride and working for it to be successful.
Children from the age of five onwards are all involved in group sporting activities. In the winter term, football (the boys are instructed by the coach of one of the junior teams of a Premiership Club) and netball predominate.
In the summer all the children are involved with cricket, tennis, rounders, netball and athletics. There is an annual Sports Day. Throughout the year, children in the Lower School are taught to swim and are encouraged to take various proficiency tests including life saving. Children in the Upper School take part in weekly gymnastics lessons at a specialist gymnastics centre under the supervision of qualified staff. Netball and football matches are arranged against other local schools. The School also, successfully, takes part in netball and football competitions.
