Children are involved in sports from an early age in our Pre-Prep. The children in Early Years enjoy PE lessons, which often take place in the Sports Hall, outside on our extensive playing fields, or on one of our two large all-weather pitches. From Year 1, the children are coached in specific sports by our excellent Sports coaches, and in Year 2, the children are able to experience playing against other schools for the first time. All children from Kindergarten upwards receive weekly swimming lessons in either our junior or 25-metre pool, and the Year 2’s take part in a swimming gala in the Summer term. Outside of the curriculum, children can take part in Scrummy’s rugby as an after school or lunchtime activity.
One of the highlights of the Summer term is the Pre-Prep Sports Day, the culmination of which is the ‘Whole Pre-Prep’ relay where the children demonstrate competitiveness and sportsmanship by competing in mixed age and ability teams, cheered on by staff and family members.
