Sport is genuinely for all at King’s, enabling every student to enjoy its benefits while providing expert coaching for the talented.
Our aim is to ensure all students experience the advantages of sport and physical fitness and can go on to enjoy those benefits long after they leave us. At the same time, we want to give our best young sportsmen and women the start they need to further their sporting careers. We have an outstanding track record in achieving both these objectives.
To ensure that all students will find an activity they enjoy, we support a huge range of sports and provide excellent facilities, including our state-of-the-art Sports Centre at Archdeacon Meadow.
Expert PE staff and coaches, who are specialists in their fields, teach all our students. The experience of being coached by the best staff, many of whom have represented their country, ensures that, along with learning the correct technique, students are truly inspired.
For high-achievers in sport, we offer pupils our Gifted and Talented programme. This provides professional coaching and a range of opportunities for individuals to develop their prowess.
Throughout the academic year, we organise a full programme of inter-school matches during the week and at weekends. King’s has built a strong reputation for sporting success at these fixtures.
We also arrange major sports tours overseas. In recent years, these have included trips to Barbados, Portugal and South Africa, all of which gave our students a superb sporting and cultural experience.
Whether it is through regular PE and Games lessons or through our many extra-curricular activities and clubs, the values and memories derived from sport at King’s mean it will always play a central role in school life.
