Other sports

Rounders

Rounders is played in the summer term and the pupils love it! It is a great sport for encouraging all to participate, especially with the many different fielding positions which all the pupils are encouraged to try. For the more competitive pupils a local league is entered. Currently our U15s have won the league for the last 3 years. A and B teams are offered in all year groups and friendly fixtures are arranged throughout the summer term.

Skiing

Skiing is a popular sport among our pupils and is a sport that can be used lifelong on holidays with friends and family. We run a development ski school at Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre as well as race training for those pupils who wish to compete. We also run a ski trip once every two years to Aple d’Huez in France.

Cross Country

Cross-Country is run as part of our health and fitness programme throughout the autumn and spring terms. There are many friendly competitions for anyone wanting to take part and District and ISA Regional races for the better runners. There are individual medals to be won and also team medals. We have had success in the District, Regional and National Competitions.
