Outdoor and active

We believe that endeavour and participation should be celebrated alongside sporting merit and achievement.

At Claremont Fan Court, we offer a wide and varied outdoor and active programme; all children are encouraged to work hard and participation at every level is valued.

With specialist staff and on-site facilities including a full-size sports hall, multiple pitches, tennis courts and a heated pool, weekly PE lessons enhance the children’s coordination, skills, stamina and teamwork whilst games lessons and regular fixtures allow the children to compete in a wide range of traditional sports, including:

  • Athletics
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Cross country
  • Dance
  • Fitness
  • Football
  • Gymnastics
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Netball
  • Rounders
  • Rugby
  • Swimming
  • Tennis

Weekly match training and competitive fixtures, with a strong emphasis on sportsmanship, give every child the opportunity to learn the value of persistence and how to conduct themselves with dignity, whether winning or losing. Regular house events and our traditional sports’ day provide additional competitive opportunities for all, whilst the victor and victrix ludorum events and inter- school tournaments to national level challenge our elite athletes.

An innovative outdoor education programme, which takes advantage of our glorious surroundings, promotes our core values of respect for one another, cooperation and camaraderie whilst enjoying the childish delights of activities such as den building or carrying a balloon body on a home-made stretcher through the woods.
