We offer an impressive programme of PE and sports. In addition to our own well equipped gym and play area, we make weekly use of the extensive sporting facilities at Barn Elms and Fulham Pools. We have two specialist sports teachers who introduce the children to a wide-range of sports for both boys and girls including netball, rugby, football, cricket, athletics, handball, fitness, cross country running and gymnastics,. From Year 1, children also have weekly swimming lessons, half termly.

Pupils have the opportunity to represent the school in a wide range of tournaments. We founded and host a netball, gymnastics and rugby tournament against a number of West London independent schools and also compete with success at the ISA Cross Country Championships, Athletics Championships and Gymnastic Championships. 

Although our teams are highly competitive, we teach the children the importance of good sportsmanship, focusing on having fun and being your best, as well as recognising the success of your peers and other competitors.

Sport improves physical fitness, stamina, flexibility, agility, strength and balance. We encourage and support each child to reach his or her own sporting ambition, be it getting into the house team, local club or London Region.
