Throughout the year students are busy competing in sport or simply enjoying Wellington School’s wide-ranging sport and recreation programme. Whatever their age or abilities, there is an extensive extra-curricular programme at the school, as well as time-tabled Games lessons.
Regular competitive fixtures and recreational programmes take place, varying from term to term, and nearly 60% of each year group represent the school throughout the year.
Most major sports have at least two teams per age group and the school achieves excellent sports results – from team games like hockey to individual ones like fencing.
Students also have access to The Princess Royal Sports Complex at the school, which offers Olympic-class sports facilities.
All extra-curricular activities are supervised by staff who are expert in their field. Many have up-to-date coaching qualifications and are keen to pass on their knowledge and enthusiasm, helping Wellington pupils make the most of their abilities and interests.
Important sporting values such as knowledge of laws, sportsmanship, codes of conduct, respect for officials, discipline, reliance, leadership, teamwork and simply having fun, are all fostered within the programmes provided.
