PLAY … “is not purely entertainment or a luxury to be given up when things get serious …
playfulness is … not only to be enjoyed but to be accorded high value for its fundamental role in the success of all organisms, including humans.”
Sport plays a very important part in the life of the school and a wide-ranging programme offers considerable choice and opportunity to our pupils, whether they pursue sporting excellence or simply enjoyment through fitness and recreation.
The standard in most sports is extremely high, and excellent results are obtained in inter-school matches and competitions. The standard of coaching is very high, where expertise and commitment is passed on to the students. The school produces many County standard players, some of whom go on to gain regional and National honours.
At the Middle School or Standard 4 level, children are placed in one of the school’s four ‘Houses’, each of which is named after a colour-Blue, Green, Yellow and Rose.
This heralds the start of a school-long loyalty and commitment to the House and its members. The result is a sense of collaborative team spirit of the highest order.
