To support our impressive games programme, our pupils are offered multiple opportunities to attend various sports trips and tours throughout all stages of their school career. At the Prep School, our trips range from local day trips to residential tours. The shorter trips are usually to see professional teams in action e.g. Twickenham Rugby, Team Bath Netball and Wimbledon Tennis. It is a very inspirational experience for our children to see the sport they love being played at the highest level by some of their role models. Our residential tours really serve to build character and encourage independence. Training and playing matches against different opposition in a new setting, and learning about the sports culture in different countries has a profound and very positive impact on the children. They always return motivated and enthusiastic and most importantly with a true understanding and respect for teamwork. In Year 6, we run a mixed hockey and netball tour to Guernsey, a trip that is so popular it has been running for over 25 years. And in Upper School, the girls Hockey tour to Holland and the boys Rugby tour to Barcelona have become a major highlight in the sporting calendar.
