Success in sport can lead to success in other fields and can lay the foundations for friendship and fun.

At Cottesmore we provide an exceptionally wide range of sports. Major games for the boys are Football, Rugby, Hockey and Cricket. The girls play Hockey, Netball and Rounders, with some Lacrosse. There is a full fixture list of matches each term for all of these, as well as for Tennis, Squash, Athletics, Swimming Judo, Golf, Cross Country Running, Short Tennis, Basketball and Shooting.

Included in our sports facilities is a superb indoor heated swimming pool. All the children learn to swim to a very high standard, the best competing nationally each year. Children also compete nationally in Tennis, Netball, Golf, Athletics and Shooting. Parents are always welcome to come and cheer the teams at home matches, which take place at least once a week, and to stay to tea afterwards. This time, incidentally, provides an opportunity for parents to meet the staff informally.

Whilst these games make up the physical education programme, within its framework, time is put aside for many other games and hobbies. Most are run as clubs with a member of staff to organise and enthuse. Many take place at weekends, time much treasured by the children, and lasting interests are often developed.
