Sport at Spratton Hall
Sport is a big part of life at Spratton Hall and all pupils have the opportunity to regularly represent their school in matches.
Many also go on to represent their county or even their country in their chosen sport.
Sport by Term
We regularly review our sport offering, but currently the sports for boys and girls are as follows:
|Autumn||Hockey & Cross Country||Rugby & Cross Country|
|Spring||Netball & Cross Country||Hockey (Years 7&8), Football (Years 4-6) & Cross Country|
|Summer||Cricket & Athletics||Cricket & Athletics|
For Year 4 and above, matches are played on Wednesday and Saturday (Year 6 and above) afternoons. In Year 3 they learn the skills, rules and match play needed so that they are ready to compete in Year 4. We play the majority of the local prep and independent schools and can have up to 20 teams playing home and away on a single afternoon.
We use SOCs to keep parents updated about fixtures and teams.
In addition to matches against other schools, every term the pupils have house matches by year group in the main sports of the term. They are a brilliant way for the children to develop their skills, learn teamwork and enjoy some friendly competition against their peers, with the opportunity to earn house points.
Tournaments and Tours
Each term, we regularly take part in, and host tournaments for multiple schools. Additionally, in Year 8 there are residential hockey and rugby tours for the girls and boys.
There is expert coaching available in all sports we play for both girls and boys. The teams will also visit local senior schools for training days and have visits from professional county players to hone their skills and discover more about local clubs.
