Prep Sport


When we talk about sport at Hoe Bridge, it is a very passionate area of the school and very much in the DNA of all the children.  Sport represents a substantial part of school life because of the importance we place on it.  Apart from promoting a healthy and active lifestyle and a lifetime of fitness, sport helps children to understand how their bodies work.  It complements intellectual and social development and supports many life skills including confidence, self-discipline, decision-making, respect and teamwork.  It relieves the pressure of the classroom, helps to activate young brains and boosts energy and enthusiasm for academic studies and other activities.  Most of all it should be fun and  

Whilst healthy competition is always encouraged, sport is played very much in keeping with the Hoe Bridge Way, with respect for fellow team members and the opposition, celebration of own and opposing teams’ successes, an absence of blame for mistakes, and acknowledgement of others’ strengths and weaknesses. The contribution, effort and support of the whole team, rather than individuals, is paramount. Our sport is inclusive, with everybody getting ample opportunity to compete, whatever their ability. 


An extensive fixture list is arranged throughout the year for both boys and girls in Prep from Year 4 as well as sports tours both within the UK and abroad. The children are constantly monitored and progression to higher teams is always possible. 

Whether a house, inter-school competition or tour, matches are always competitive, with our teams following the principles of fair play. Many have gained county recognition and gone on to win at both local level and IAPS National Championships as well as receiving Sports Scholarships to Senior schools. Extra-curricular sports are also very popular, played in mixed groups at our afterschool clubs. 

We benefit from extensive sport facilities across our 22 acres including two sports halls, three large playing fields, all weather pitch, heated outdoor swimming pool, outdoor and indoor cricket nets, a cross country course and grass and artificial cricket squares. 

Because of the importance we place on sport at Hoe Bridge, it represents a substantial part of school life and the weekly timetable. Pre-Prep children have PE/Games twice a week plus swimming during warmer months increasing to four times a week in Prep, plus inter-school matches. Sport is taken by a team of specialist PE teachers throughout the school.
