Worth has long had a reputation for sporting excellence, with our pupils achieving representative regional and international honours, as well as Junior World Championship and European, Commonwealth and Olympic medals.
Our leading coaches have also played at the highest level professionally and won international honours.
“Pupils achieve significantly at regional and national level in sports and the arts, both collectively and in individual pursuits. New options, such as lacrosse and girls’ cricket, have enriched the programme.” ISI Inspection 2017
The major sports at Worth are rugby union, football, cricket, hockey, tennis and athletics for boys and hockey, lacrosse, netball, tennis, football and athletics for girls, and badminton, basketball, cross country, fencing, golf, rounders, squash and swimming are also offered.
All pupils take part in the formal timetabled sports programme. Enthusiastic games players, and those who represent the School in sports teams, will generally train more frequently than this. Each year group usually fields at least two, and often three, teams in each sport. In this way, important opportunities are assured for enthusiastic games players to represent Worth School regularly in competitive fixtures. Beyond the formal structured games programme, the extensive activities programme provides further opportunities for pupils to sample and enjoy different sports and develop new skills. In addition, the sports facilities are available during leisure time which adds a further dimension to the recreational and social life of a busy boarding and day school.
Whether pupils are seeking excellence and high-level performance or simply enjoyable recreation, Worth School Sport makes provision for all.
