In 2015 we proudly opened our new sports grounds located directly behind the school. There are two rugby pitches, a football pitch and cricket square in place. We place great value on sport as an important aspect of personal development for boys, by improving strength, fitness, team building and social skills and by participation in healthy competition. Sport for life.
The school is fully involved with local inter-school competitions and runs a full fixtures programme thoughout the school year. Training takes place both during games lessons and at specific coaching sessions after school. As well as the new sports grounds, we also have regular access to several local facilities such as the Whitgift Sports Club (formerly Old Whitgiftians).
