Summer brings athletics to the sports curriculum for our Pre-Prep & Prep girls and boys. Core skills are developed across all disciplines in both track and field. Our athletes enjoy attending inter-school meets and representing in a range of events.
Cricket is a major summer sport for our boys and girls, which begins with striking and fielding lessons in the Pre-Prep. Pupils progress to playing competitive matches from Year 3. The aim is simple: to inspire them into a lifelong love of the game.
Boys enjoy a fantastic range of football matches and tournaments and are taught from Year 1. Recent highlights include our U11A team being crowned 7-a-side champions in the Brighton and Hove District League. The College has close connections with Brighton and Hove Albion.
The hockey season is always full of excitement with training aiming to unlock potential and teach a range of skills. All girls from Year 4 represent the school during the season and they work hard to put their developing talent into practice.
Weekly games lessons and fixtures from Year 2 enhances girls' enjoyment of netball across all age groups. The girls show vast improvement as they move between seasons and enjoy working on team building and specific netball skills.
Introduced from Year 2, all age groups are taught key match play skills as they move through the year groups. We focus on learning and development, encouraging everyone to be the best they can be.
Our swimming squad practices regularly at the Brighton Swim Centre and enjoys success in many of the age group meets they enter. Our swimmers will benefit enormously from the College's new 25m pool which will open at the start of 2020.
A summer term sport for girls and boys, tennis is played across a range of abilities with teams enjoying success in fixtures played against local schools.
