Top 100 Sports Schools

11 May 2016

We are thrilled to be one of only two independent schools in Kent, alongside Sevenoaks, to have been included in School Sport magazine's annual list of the 'Top 100 Sports Schools' which includes 'the best of the best' in the school sporting arena.  

According to School Sport magazine; "The list reflects competitive achievement in a range of sports throughout 2015 and honours those schools that take competition especially seriously. Based on 20 different sports and more than 120 different national competitions, more weighting is given to success in a range of sports rather than single sports – not to mention competitions with more teams competing - and all results are inputted into a special computer programme".

The list was topped by established centres of sporting excellence, Millfield, Whitgift and Guildford High School.

Speaking about the list, Headmistress Mrs Milner, said, 'To be ranked with the giants of the school sporting world is a real David and Goliath moment for a medium sized school like us. I am delighted that the expertise of our PE and coaching team, investment in sports facilities like the new Sports Centre, ethos of encouraging everyone to 'have a go' and, above all, the talent, enthusiasm and dedication of our students has been recognised in this way. Like all the best sporting results this rewards a fantastic team effort."
