Sports Curriculum

Our sports curriculum is designed to maximise participation and inclusivity so all pupils benefit, regardless of their ability or interest. From Reception through to Year 6, children get to experience a broad programme of individual and team-based sporting activities.

Sports taught within our curriculum include athletics, cricket, cross country, football, gymnastics, hockey, netball and tennis. We encourage all our pupils to get involved in sport and they thrive in an environment where effort, improvement and commitment are rewarded.

“The sports facilities, sports fixtures and the sport itself at out school are just great!”

Sporting opportunities

We encourage the girls to have a go at a variety of other sports through our co-curricular clubs programme. Activities include fencing, netball, dance, athletics and gymnastics club.

In addition, there are opportunities to take part in organised sporting events beyond the curriculum, such as the Surrey Ski Championships and Restless Development Schools Triathlon.

This year, more than 100 Study girls took part in Restless Development’s Schools Triathlon, raising over £11,000 for the fantastic cause by running, swimming and cycling in the event.

Competitive fixtures

We take part in a busy annual programme of matches and tournaments against other independent schools. Different ability teams are formed during training sessions and these teams represent the school at matches.

We are extremely proud of our long history of competitive successes, often at national level, particularly in athletics, cross country and netball.

There are further opportunities for sporting competition in year group matches against other schools and inter-house football and netball matches, as well as our much loved annual Summer term Sports Day.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re in the A, B or C team for netball. Everyone gets a chance to have a go. ”

Beverley Meads Sports Ground

The Study’s sports ground at Beverley Meads is in the south-west corner of Wimbledon Common, about two miles from our main school site.

Girls go to Beverley Meads for sport once a week from Year 1 and, from Year 2, weekly games afternoons are held at the sports ground. We have two netball courts as well as the use of a large area of green space for netball, cricket and football training. After-school sports clubs also takes place at Beverley Meads.

Parents are welcome to spectate at any matches and tournaments hosted here and every so often we organise matches for parents, too!

“Sport provides so many opportunities for pupils to overcome obstacles and learn it’s ok to fail as long as you try your best. And there’s nothing quite like the feeling of winning a fixture or two along the way! ”

Miss Dalgleish, Head of Sport
