Sport & Activities

At All Hallows, every child has the opportunity to participate in team and individual sports and activities at the level that challenges them but which suits their ability.

With over 15 acres of pitches, floodlit tennis courts, a modern sports hall, heated covered swimming pool, an Astroturf pitch, a multi-purpose surface, golf practice nets and bunkers, cricket nets, an all weather cricket wicket and more, our facilities are matched by the expertise and commitment of staff and visiting professionals who contribute to sport at every level of the school. Investment in teaching and facilities has been extensive and is on-going in order to enable us to provide programmes that are as individualised as possible.

Sport is a vitally important feature of school life. Through the games lessons and the physical education programme, all children are encouraged to take part and parents are invited to spectate and support the children in competitive fixtures and tournaments. The weekend match programme (morning and afternoon) is extremely extensive and is a major feature of our wider educational provision.

Coaching opportunities exist in rugby, hockey, cricket, netball, rounders, swimming, athletics, gymnastics, trampolining, judo, golf, riding, fencing, ballet, cross-country, as well as other activities like basketball, squash, football, etc. Our Tennis Academy is a very significant entity, supporting children and adults across the performance spectrum. The Academy holds the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) Clubmark.

Sports tours are organised in the major team games on a regular basis; the rugby and hockey teams, for example, have enjoyed visits recently to Holland, Ireland and other regions in England.
