Sport and Activities
Prep children experience a wide variety of sports in Games and PE lessons. There is a extensive range of clubs at lunchtime and after school, and there are opportunities to compete in a House or School team. Swimming is taught from Reception: for this we visit a local swimming pool.
Pupils are provided with opportunities to experience a range of team and individual sports to help develop a broad base of interests. The emphasis is on fun, participation and team ethic. Recent team successes include Kent U11 rugby finalists, mixed tag-rugby finalists and cross country U11Bronze Medal. Individual achievements include County Honours in cricket, rugby and chess.
Sports facilities include hockey and football pitches; netball, basketball and tennis courts; cricket nets; gymnasium, badminton and volleyball courts. We also use local all-weather pitches. Future plans include the construction of a new Sports Hall and Design Studio: planned to commence later on this year.
An after-school club programme, from 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm every day, includes activities such as athletics, drama (LAMDA), crafts, model making, brain-training, multi-sports incl. gymnastics, cross-country, rugby, netball and football, cookery, art, bush-craft and gardening. Some clubs take place at lunchtimes such as ball skills, music, judo, chess, tennis and ballet.
