Prep - Sport

Sport continues to play a large part in each pupil’s life here in Prep, and we continue to strive for an inclusive and encouraging approach whilst still celebrating our many successes. 


We have shown strength and depth in a variety of sports, from Cross Country Champions to Golf winners. The Cricket and Football teams were exceptionally close runners up in their tournaments, too, remaining unbeaten until the incredibly close final in both events! Our Winter Indoor Athletics team worked hard to secure top spot in the District, and our multiple Swimming fixtures were a resounding success. Every pupil from Prep I to VI has been invited to represent the College in a sporting event this year, which demonstrates our inclusive nature within sport. 


Our KS2 Interhouse Swimming Gala is always a highlight of the year, and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed working together with other year groups towards a common goal.  Pupils take part in a range of interhouse sporting events throughout the year, eager to be crowned the winning house. The Prep VI House Captains were thrilled to help organise and run the annual Sports Day for Kindergarten, Reception, Prep I and Prep II, before representing their own houses in their KS2 events. It is always a fun, friendly and competitive day giving all the pupils the opportunity to celebrate school sport.

Every summer we have a Sports Day for KS1 and KS2. KS1 divide into colour teams and KS2 go into their Houses. It involves lots of different games and races such as shot, discus and high jump.
