Sport at RSM
Games lessons play a major part in school life
Sport helps children to build leadership skills, confidence, teamwork, respect and resilience and supports their physical fitness and wellbeing. It is an integral part of life at Reigate St Mary’s with two full afternoons dedicated to Games each week in the Upper School. The children play a variety of sports including rugby, hockey, football, netball, cricket and athletics. There are also regular fixtures and tournaments throughout the school year.
Our 15 acre site provides ample space for sport 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. Reigate Grammar School’s impressive sports ground, Hartswood, is a short distance away and children in Year 5 and 6 also make use of the excellent facilities there.
Swimming lessons begin in Reception and continue throughout the school to Year 6. We also run a Masters Swimming Elective before and after school 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.
