Sport is a crucial element of the educational experience we offer at The Leys.
The variety, depth and quality of our provision are essential components in generating an atmosphere in which our pupils can both develop and enjoy their sport, while also creating an awareness of the relationship between constructive exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
The Leys identifies four key benefits of sport in education:
Pupils of all ability are encouraged to play meaningful and competitive sport at either House, School or representative level. All pupils who opt to play a particular sport have access to excellent facilities and the opportunity to benefit from outstanding professional coaching. Every team group has its own dedicated coach and the opportunity to participate in competitive sport, whatever their ability. We run teams at depth in all age groups and also run competitive House competitions in many sports. We are privileged with outstanding sporting facilities, both at the School and Latham Road, with a fully committed grounds staff working to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
We recognise and welcome competition within sport. Competition encourages team awareness and, when guided appropriately, teaches the importance of winning without arrogance and losing with good grace. All sports offer competitive fixtures at both School and House level, and much emphasis is placed on the way pupils conduct themselves on and off the pitch, with all pupils, coaches and supporters aware of the need for the highest standards of sportsmanship.
