During the daily games sessions and regular inter-school and internal fixtures (U8 – U13), our experienced games staff ensure that all children are given the opportunity to achieve their potential, no matter their ability, whilst also ensuring that each session and match day experience is purposeful and enjoyable.

Sport provides a fantastic opportunity for learning to continue outside of the traditional classroom environment. Using sport as a vehicle, all pupils regularly have the chance to work on their Teamwork, Leadership and Communication (TLC) skills, as well as allowing them to forge friendships and create lifelong memories in a safe and enjoyable environment. Throughout their time at Abberley, the varied and structured games programme helps improve their knowledge and understanding of various sports and allows the pupils to make informed decisions in later years about sports they may like to pursue.

In addition to games, each year group has a weekly PE lesson and there is also broad extra-curricular programme in the evenings and at weekends.

We ensure that all children have the opportunity to play in regular, competitive matches. As well as this, we regularly participate and see success at Regional and National level, such as in Athletics, Cross-Country, Cricket, Fencing, Hockey, Horse Riding, Netball, Sailing, Skiing and Rugby. The school was also named in the Top 50 Prep Schools for Cricket (2018 and 2019).

Our children’s achievements also extend to being awarded Sports Scholarships and Exhibitions to leading independent schools across the country. To strengthen these links with senior schools, we also supplement the quality dedicated coaching provided from the Abberley Hall staff by regularly inviting professionals and Heads of Sport from leading independent school’s to run sessions for our pupils.
