Prep Sport

what's in this section

With extensive grounds and fine facilities, physical activity is integral to the Westonbirt Prep curriculum and co-curricular activities. A broad range of Physical Education and Games are offered so that every child can benefit from the integration of sport within their daily life. Through Physical Education lessons, after school activities and team sports, children gain essential sporting and social  skills alongside health and fitness benefits.

Children participate in a full range of team sports as part of the curriculum including rugby, hockey, netball, cricket, cross country, athletics, swimming and PE. All children swim once a week in our 25m indoor pool and there are before and after school swim options for Years 3 to 6. Prep school children compete each year in the IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools) National Swimming Finals gala and often take home several medals! In 2017, the boys Under 11 team came 1st in the 8x25m freestyle relay; the girls Under 11 team 2nd in the 8x25m freestyle relay. Pupils also compete with other schools in inter-school matches on a regular basis from Year 3 onwards. This includes matches in netball, cricket, rugby, hockey and athletics.

Our unique country location means we can offer children a huge range of exciting additional sporting opportunities outside of the regular classroom lessons. Pupils can participate in a full range of sports based after school clubs aimed at both groups and individuals. These include tennis and golf coaching all year round and clubs such as judo, fencing and multi sports amongst many others throughout the year.
