Sport at Waverley
A good programme of curricular and extra-curricular activities enhances the educational experience and enjoyment of pupils at the school." ISI
Waverley offers a broad programme of sporting opportunities for all children. We recognise the hugely positive impact that sport can have on the health and wellbeing of a young person and therefore, our primary aim is to prepare our pupils for a life-long involvement in sport.
Opportunities are aplenty at Waverley and pupils have up to four timetabled hours of sport each week. The traditional Prep School sports of Football, Rugby, Cricket, Netball, Hockey and Rounders form the basis of our Games curriculum in Years 3 – 6. Pupils also have an additional Physical Education lesson each week where physical literacy is taught through sports such as Dance, Gymnastics, Athletics, Basketball, Tennis, Badminton and Dodgeball. In addition to Games and PE, all pupils in Year 1 – Year 4 also have a weekly Swimming lesson, taught by specialist swimming teachers.
Waverley offers a competitive sports programme, with weekly fixtures for Year 3 – 6 against other local independent schools. Whilst our fixtures are competitive and we strive to achieve sporting excellence, our ethos of ‘Sport for All’ is always our main priority and qualities such as teamwork, sportsmanship, resilience and collaboration are encouraged.
Your child will take part in a number of different team and individual sports including:
- Football / soccer
- Soft tennis
- Table tennis
