Football is the main sport played in the Lent term and as with rugby, every boy is expected to represent the school in competitive matches. Just last term, we were able to field 19 different teams and this involved every boy in the school representing the school on a single day. We are lucky enough to have large and beautiful grounds which enable us to field so many competitive teams. The pre-prep has started training the boys from year two so when they join the prep schools they have a good understanding of the game. Each team has a number of matches throughout the season and last season the 1st XI was unbeaten. As is the case with rugby we believe that football builds confidence in boys and really helps them feel part of a team and indeed the children feel proud to represent their school.
