Our children play games every day and many of the older pupils take part in matches twice a week. We hold our own against much bigger schools and we are incredibly fortunate to have on-site facilities as well as being situated within minutes’ walk of Wandsworth Common.

Children who are physically active do better across the curriculum and sport teaches tenacity, communication, teamwork, and resilience. All our pupils take part in PE and Games for at least five periods a week. We start off with foundation skills, such as jumping, running, catching and throwing and we then progress to team sports. We do football, netball, touch-rugby, hockey, athletics, rounders, and cricket. From Year 2 our children participate in interhouse competitions which give them a wonderful sense of purpose and brings them together for a common goal. Our Year 3 pupils participate in regular matches against other schools.

All children attend swimming lessons at the local pools and there are various after school activity clubs for those in Year 1 and above. A typical offering might be gymnastics, football, swimming, or tennis.

The main sports we play are football, rugby, and cricket. However, we have many other options including athletics, cross-country, golf, hockey, karate, table tennis, tennis, triathlon, shooting and swimming.

We take our boys on tours regardless of ability. Recently we went on a rugby tour to Wales and Leicester and a cricket tour to South Africa and Sri-Lanka. Our aim is to inspire all boys to work hard in sport, improve their skills and understand the benefit of a healthy and balanced lifestyle through sport.

Our focus is on encouraging girls to enjoy being active as well as teaching them the important life skills of teamwork, communication, perseverence and resilience. With there now being real options of professional careers for women in sports such as rugby, football and cricket, we now offer these as part of our curriculum.

We offer girls the opportunity to sample a wide range of sports both in timetabled lessons as well as in extra-curricular clubs including cricket, cross country, cross fit, dance, football, gymnastics, hockey, karate, lacrosse, netball, rugby, running, sailing, swimming, tennis and yoga as well as focusing in depth on our core sports in which we play competitive matches.

For those who excel, we help to guide and steer them towards competition and success and many of our girls go on to win sports scholarships to their senior schools.
