School Life

Sport

Sport is a very important part of a St Edmund’s education, beginning with Pre-Prep. We want all children to be active, and sport gives them the opportunity to learn new skills and grow in confidence, whilst having fun.

We also encourage them to learn the vital life skills of listening, sharing, taking turn and teamwork – all useful to them when they move on to Junior School.

Children can take part in football, basketball and hockey activities, and so develop their spatial awareness and understanding of games. They are taught by specialists and use the school’s excellent facilities, including the all-weather pitch, sports hall and playing fields. Children from Reception Class to Year 2 also greatly enjoy their weekly swimming lessons taught by specialist teachers at a local pool.

The annual Sports Day is an exciting event which brings Pre-Prep children together to show off their sports skills to family and friends.
