Sport plays a major part in the life of the School and the extracurricular program on offer is huge. On top of students’ two hours of Physical Education curriculum time each week at Key Stage 3/4 and one hour at Key Stage 5, students also have the opportunity to involve themselves in a range of weekly sports clubs.
Every student has the opportunity to participate in additional physical activity and sport on a intra and inter school competitive level, from an inter-house competition all the way through to National level competitions and even International Sports tours. Our aim is to develop provision for all giving both competitive and recreational opportunities for every single student. Last academic year we had 526 fixtures in 15 different sports with over 600 different students representing the school in competitive inter school sport. A statistic that we are immensely proud of. It’s not just the competition that we focus on and we encourage all students to participate in some form of extracurricular activity and welcome all levels of athleticism working with students to have fun, whilst developing fitness and skill level.
Sandringham has a rich history in sporting success and continues to perform at a very high level. We take part in all major competitions on a District, County, Regional and National level, as well as also touring internationally to compete against clubs and schools in other countries, having recently visited Holland, Spain and Malta with future tours already planned. We also regularly have a number of students gaining representative honours at District, County, Regional and even International level and always look to support these students with their intensive training schedules where possible. We fully believe that we can work alongside coaches and teams to develop sporting talent and nurture hard work to reach sporting potential.
Our facilities for sport are outstanding and include a new £2 million sports centre, all-weather astroturf, 25m swimming pool, a gymnasium, 6 tennis courts, 4 netball courts, 2 football pitches, 2 rugby pitches, a fitness suite and 2 dance studios, all that are available for students to use.
