The school achieves much success in local sporting events. Regular sports fixtures take place with other schools. Swimming takes place weekly at the local pool for all children from Reception to Year 6. Our pupils take part in many local sporting events, such as sports fixtures against local maintained and independent schools and ISA regional sporting events. Some pupils have represented the South West Area in sport. These activities provide supportive links with the local community, which benefit the pupils.

Everyone does everything here! All of our children take part in music, drama and sport and it is possible for every child to represent the school at sport if they wish as we compete at all levels to suit all abilities. 

We enter teams in local tournaments and competitions and, as members of the Independent Schools Association (ISA), are able to enter regional and national competitions too. Several of our children have been selected for the South West Area athletics squad and have subsequently become National Champions in their events. 

Sports activities available to pupils include:

  • Athletics
  • Ballet
  • Cricket
  • Cycling Proficiency
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Indoor PE
  • Jazz and Modern Dance
  • Mini Tennis
  • Multiskills
  • Netball
  • Rounders
