Sporting Life

Games lessons play a major part in school life.

Our 15 acre site provides ample space for Games providing us with four football pitches, a hockey pitch, two multi-purpose courts, an artificial cricket strip and a 200 metre grass running track. We also have a fantastic, fully equipped Sports Hall to further develop skills in both PE and Games.

From Year 3 all children have the opportunity to play a variety of sports including rugby, hockey, football, netball, rounders, cricket and athletics. They are also able to play regularly in fixtures and tournaments throughout the school year.

Swimming lessons begin in Reception and continue throughout the school to Year 6. From Year 3 onwards our children use the excellent pool facilities at Reigate Grammar School in their PE lessons. We also run a Masters Swimming after school Elective and host an annual Inter-School Gala.

Dedicated, specialist Games teachers work hard to find a sport that each child enjoys and our after school Electives give the children the chance to develop their skills even further.

 Our after school sporting Electives include: 

  • Hockey
  • Dance Academy
  • Netball
  • Golf
  • Cross Country
  • Judo
  • Squash
  • Athletics
  • Tennis
  • Cricket Academy
  • Gymnastics
  • Stingrays
  • Swim Team
  • Pro-Direct Soccer

 

We firmly believe that sport is for all at Reigate St Mary’s and every child has the opportunity of representing the school in fixtures and playing in our House competitions from Year 3. We also have competitive Sports Days which offer both individual and team events for the children to take part in.

One of the highlights of the school year is our annual Sports Tour. This is open to both boys and girls in years 5 and 6. This year we are visiting Holland where the children enjoy a mixture of excursions, training and matches in football and hockey.

Children also have the chance to experience a taste of our outdoor life on our residential Bushcraft trips in Years 4, 5 and 6.

When my children get up in the morning, they want to go to school. I never had that at their last school.
