We recognise the benefits our pupils gain from physical and mental challenges that stretch their horizons. Scores of activities take place throughout the week and at weekends, designed to challenge pupils and enable them to develop new interests and skills. They include art, board games, chess, climbing, debating, the magazine, maths, skateboarding (our own half-pipe), skiing, snowboarding, trampolining and welding.
There are School clubs for team and individual sports. We have a large playing field used for athletics, cricket, football and rugby, and a floodlit area for basketball, netball and tennis. Indoors, there is a swimming pool, with personal survival and life-saving instruction available, a fitness training facility, a squash court and a well-equipped sports hall.
In addition to the daily sports and activities programme, pupils are encouraged to take part in other curricular and extra-curricular pursuits such as the orchestras and choir competitions, the School play, sailing weekends, departmental visits, The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, World Challenge expeditions and overseas trips including European and American ski tours and the South African Rugby Tour.
