Sports

 

The Kingswood House sports department provides our boys with an environment in which they are able to develop their sporting skills across a vast and intriguing curriculum. Our “sport for all” approach enables children of all ages and abilities to achieve sporting success in a variety of different sports.

With each class having a one PE lesson a week the emphasis is placed away from mainstream sports. This lets the boys participate in sports that they would not otherwise consider- such as basketball, gymnastics, orienteering and climbing.

Alongside this every year group has two games lessons a week, including one full afternoon of sport.

The four sports coached are football, rugby, hockey and cricket with regular competitive fixtures against other local schools enabling the boys to transfer the skills that they learn into a match environment. There are also weekly after school coaching sessions for those who want more sporting practice.

We boast a sports department containing numerous qualified coaches over a wide range of sports. This enables us to excel in every area of our high quality curriculum.

Sport at Kingswood House has moved from strength to strength, highlighted by our ability to compete a high level of prep school sport.

Aims of PE and Games

To maintain and stimulate pupil interest and enjoyment in P.E. and to promote health and fitness for current and future lifestyles.

To enable pupils to develop a range of desirable personal qualities such as safety awareness, politeness, perseverance, concern for others, initiative and independence.  The establishment of pupil self esteem through the development of physical confidence is a major aim of PE at KHS.

We offer a Sport for All programme that encourages all children irrespective of ability to represent their school. We understand that although sport in Prep Schools is historically based around team sports, we appreciate that this does not suit all and encourage children through our Options Programme which allows them to try new activities which they will hopefully continue through into their senior school and beyond.
