Sport

We are immensely proud of our sporting pedigree and our outstanding sporting achievements. At Windrush Valley Prep School, we play competitive sport in a wide variety of games and sports, including, team games/PE, athletics (track and field), swimming, cross-country, football, rugby, hockey and netball. Our extensive sports programme has resulted in children competing at the highest level in swimming, athletics and cross country. For the last 10 years, our pupils have competed at a national level at the Independent Schools Association championship. We also regularly compete at sport with other Oxfordshire school teams.

In addition to competitive sport, we motivate children to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle and an appreciation and love for sporting and fitness activities, both inside school and outside of school. As part of our extended day programme, we also run several after-school clubs which focus on fitness including, yoga and indoor hockey. Through sport, we instil the foundations of team work, camaraderie, individual performance and leadership. The children have fun whilst also competing. Our extensive and inspiring curriculum, small class sizes, experienced teaching staff and sporting pedigree, delivers academic, behaviour and sporting excellence.

School team selection

We challenge our pupils to be the best they can, to reach beyond the norm, whatever their abilities. We coach, inspire and nurture children in all aspects of their schooling, including sport. Children selected to represent the school at all sporting venues and events represent the school with pride and distension. Therefore, must wear the full games/PE uniform and uniform outdoor clothing (waterproof jacket, fleece hat/gloves/scarf) when necessary.

Parents are kept up to date with regard the school’s sporting events, activities and achievements. We also regularly inform parents as to their children’s individual progress. If you would like more information please speak with the class teacher. Alternatively, you are welcome to contact the school office on 01993 831793
