The aim of sport at The Sheffield Private School is to provide as many opportunities as possible for all children of all abilities. The programme offered in physical education, swimming and games is firmly based on participation. The department organises an extensive range of competitions which take place throughout the year.
The Sport programmes are delivered by professional staff who are specialists in their own game. They assess every student’s skills, develop and record skill enhancement and prepare students for local and international competitions.
Sport is central to the life of the school. Sport should be enjoyed by and is valuable to all. Self-confidence and teamwork are qualities that transfer to other areas of school life and all our students have the opportunity to be involved in sport at some level.
Athletic development is key from the earliest age, with sport-specific skills being introduced through the school at the appropriate ages. The wonderful facilities, expert coaches and experienced teachers are utilised to the full in preparing for the main team games. Many pupils will represent the school in fixtures with other schools as well as competing very successfully in National and International events.
