The Sports Department is led by a Director of Sport supported by an Assistant Director of Sport. In total there are 4 full time members and five part time members of staff. We are seeking to recruit an experienced and enthusiastic Teacher of Girls’ Games to join the team.
Sports is a valued activity within the school with 100% participation rate and many National successes.

The key sports for girls are Netball, Hockey, Rounders and Cricket as part of the Games curriculum, with pupils also participating in PE – gymnastics, dance, health related fitness, general games, athletics and swimming in the summer term. In addition, there is a full enrichment activity programme that includes fencing, football, rounders, cross country, triathlon. Tennis, in particular, is growing in popularity.
Sporting facilities are first rate with an astroturf, heated outdoor swimming pool, gymnasium, netball and tennis courts, cricket nets and an abundance of land for rugby, rounders and cricket. The school field can be adapted for athletics during the summer term. The Junior School has close links with St George’s College with weekly visits for athletics and hockey by Year Six pupils. Pupils also benefit from using the Tennis Centre there and in the future the new Activity Centre.
