Sport

Sport is an important part of life at The Prep.

Every pupil should have the opportunity to engage, progress and enjoy the various elements of the extensive sporting opportunities on offer here at the Prep. Establishing a culture of participation, where all strive willingly and some excel, will be the driving force in building a thriving programme over the coming years.

Whilst we are keen to look forward we are also proud of our reputation. 

Our rugby, football and cricket teams enjoy annual tours and our athletes compete successfully at the highest level. Our swimmers regularly finish in the top three at National level, our rugby players enjoy highly successful seasons and our footballers have qualified for the finals of the National six-a-side competition three times in recent years.

We run more than 60 sports teams across a variety of sports throughout the year. Over 400 fixtures are organised, for teams ranging from school 1st teams to year group “G” teams, and all have access to the same expert coaching and excellent facilities.

Sport begins in the Early Years with every pupil taking part in Sports Day.  It develops to include swimming galas and athletics sports days, as well as rugby, football and cricket tournaments as the boys move through the sections of the school.

We encourage the boys to develop an interest in all aspects of sport, and parents are always welcome on the touchline.
