I agree with our Chief Inspector, it is not just about the facilities, it is about the attitude and here at Sedbergh we have a 489-year-old belief that competitive sport is essential to building the whole child, to giving them experiences and opportunities that will prepare them for life beyond school, teaching them about responsibility, working under pressure, working towards a goal.
Competitive sport is back on the national agenda; my hope is that it kick starts all schools, not just independent, into using it as a tool to educate and inspire our next generation.
