Weekly swimming lessons are offered to all children from Reception to Year 6 and are taught by specialist swimming teachers.
Our pupils in Years 3-6 take part in one double period of Games every week, where the focus is on learning the major games (hockey, netball, football, cricket, athletics and rounders). Pupils in Year 3-4 take part in small sided games and Festivals for their particular sport with regular fixtures. Festivals and tournaments occur more regularly in Years 5-6. Our extensive extra-curricular programme supports the delivery of sport throughout the academic year. We are also fortunate to have specialist coaches from Leyton Orient delivering football sessions throughout the year. There are hundreds of sporting fixtures every term, increasing in number as the pupils move through the Preparatory School.
