Sport is an essential part of life at Longacre. Children from Kindergarten upwards are taught by specialist staff using our fantastic facilities. The energy exuded by our sports department inspires the children to achieve their best.

In Games, boys and girls enjoy seasonal English sports such as:

  • Football
  • Netball
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Rounders

Children also relish our extensive P.E. curriculum which promotes personal fitness and achievement through a varied and rewarding programme. Topics include:

  • Dance
  • Athletics
  • Badminton
  • Gymnastics
  • Tennis
  • Basketball

All children from Forms II – VI are given an opportunity to represent Longacre in competitive fixtures against other schools. Children of all abilities are encouraged to participate and given the opportunity to do so.

Developing the will to win is a major aspect of playing any sport but not the only aim. Whilst we encourage our children to be competitive and win, learning to lose gracefully is just as important. We also place significant emphasis on the social aspect of playing sport and as a result the children thoroughly enjoy the match day experience. They meet children from other schools, travel by mini bus and enjoy socialising over a match tea after their fixtures.
