As well as providing lots of fresh air and exercise, it encourages team spirit, fair play and leadership qualities. We offer a balanced sports programme which includes netball, hockey, football, rugby, cricket, athletics, cross-country, basketball, gymnastics, tennis and swimming. Healthy competition is fostered through inter-house contests, sports days and fixtures with other schools.
Younger children are taught general physical education skills to prepare them for the more formal introduction to specific sports at Junior level. Our excellent facilities, shared with the College, include a floodlit all-weather pitch, tennis and netball courts, athletics track, cricket field and nets, football, rounders and rugby pitches, sports hall and an indoor swimming pool.
At the end of the school day, Junior children can take part in our activities programme, which offers a lively and interesting dimension to life at St Edmund’s Prep. A wide range of activities is available, from musical clubs to sporting activities such as football and rounders. Other popular activities include dance, cooking, art and craft, computers and drama.
