All the girls participate in a wide variety of sports at the Prep School.

We make the most of our extensive grounds with our own cross-country course, orienteering course, three netball courts, two fields and a multi-purpose gym. Swimming is also available at the Senior School. We have a daily run around our cross-country course before school. Throughout the week we enjoy a range of competitive and non-competitive activities to suit all abilities, and we ensure girls have a good understanding of health and fitness.

Our gymnastics and netball clubs are popular and we also teach football, lacrosse, tennis, rounders, Kwik cricket, hockey, tag rugby, dance, fencing, karate and cheerleading. All of this keeps the girls enthusiastic about exercising, and some achieve high levels of excellence in their chosen sport; we have recently competed in national finals in swimming, athletics, cross country and orienteering.
