The Junior School sports programme offers opportunities for pupils to learn and excel in both our curricular and extensive co-curricular activities.
Our programme balances mass participation alongside excellence with pupils being given opportunities to lead, to practice, to persevere when things are tough and to celebrate success.
The Junior School has an extensive fixture programme against many local schools.
In the Michaelmas Term the boys and girls are split for Games with the boys playing rugby and the girls playing netball. There are though after school co-curricular clubs in both sports which both boys and girls are welcome to attend.
In the Lent Term all pupils play football with fixtures organised for both mixed and single sex teams often depending on the opposition we are playing.
Hockey fixtures are also played in this term predominantly by our Year 5 & 6 pupils, with both mixed teams and single sex teams.
In the Summer Term all pupils play cricket with fixtures for both mixed and single sex teams.
Pupils also have the opportunity within their PE programme to Swim and play tennis with galas and local tournaments entered in both.
In addition to this pupils, through our co-curricular programme, pupils may participate in Fencing, Judo, Table Tennis, Skiing, Cross Country, Judo and Rounders.
