Sedbergh is renowned for its top level achievement in a wide variety of sports, with boys and girls featuring prominently in national and international teams – and the School boasts 35 capped alumni in its ranks. The foundation for this achievement is built at The Prep School.
Our recipe for success is simple. We play sport at least five days a week, and all pupils have top class coaching regardless of their ability, with an emphasis on fun as well as achievement. For pupils aged 9-13, we also organise extremely popular residential Sports Academies for rugby, cricket, netball and hockey during the school holidays, which are run by professional coaches and staff.
We strive to produce achievers, spirited young people with a professional attitude towards personal performance and team responsibility. Competition is taken seriously, and boys and girls participate regularly in regional, national and international competitions and tours.
However, we have never lost sight of the fun and pleasure that can be found through involvement in sport, and pupils are encouraged to cheer each other on even when they are not actively participating.
