Sport plays a major role in the school community. The school aims to maintain and stimulate pupil interest and enjoyment in P.E. and to promote health and fitness. Competitions are organised at School and also at House level across the age groups to cater for all abilities. We promote team spirit and recognise how sport assists in the development of social and personal qualities.
Our sports centre comprises a 4 court badminton hall which can cater for a range of other sports, a climbing wall and a state of the art health and fitness room with both free and fixed weights room and cardiovascular section, as well as a spinning studio. The playing fields consist of 5 rugby pitches and 1 football pitch during the winter and during the summer it converts into a 400m running track and three cricket pitches.
The major sports on offer are rugby and hockey in the winter and cricket and athletics in the summer. A variety of other sports are available including: football (6th Form only), athletics, swimming (6th Form only), cross-country, weight training, golf, spinning, tennis, badminton, handball and basketball.
We are proud that many of our pupils represent clubs, counties and country. This success is based on a very full fixture list - mostly on Saturdays - against many of the top schools in the South East.
Those who represent the school do so with enthusiasm and pride and play with the values of the school represented by:
Team work, Respect, Commitment, Fair play, Pride, Excellence and Enjoyment.
