Facilities for sport are excellent and include an on-site swimming pool, two multi-purpose all-weather pitches as well as other games fields and dedicated sports courts.
Sport plays an integral part of life at Monkton Prep. From the moment the children join in Nursery they have weekly physical education which is then built upon by dedicated Heads of Sport, who oversee our children’s sporting progression across the whole of Monkton. Weekly swimming lessons are added from Reception onwards, and a full programme of games lessons begins in Year 1.
The range of sports that pupils can engage in is huge in the hope that everyone will find a sport for life and take pleasure in physical activity. Our girls enjoy regular competition in netball, swimming, football, cricket, cross-country, triathlon, rugby, athletics and tennis, while for the boys there is plenty of rugby, hockey, tennis, cricket, swimming, football, cross-country, triathlon and athletics. Optional sports include golf, basketball, badminton, pistol shooting, biathlon, judo and rowing, to name but a few.
Monkton is proud of its sporting achievements and many of our teams go on to represent the school at county, regional and national events. While we have a number of pupils who achieve significant representative success, our focus is on supporting all of our pupils in their sporting endeavours.
Parents and friends are very welcome to attend matches and your support is always very much appreciated by players and staff. A full list of fixtures is available on My School Portal.
