Sport

The pleasure and discipline of sport forms an important part of Prep’s education programme, with the emphasis on participation and the value of sport as a life-long activity.

St Andrews College and Prep share campuses and facilities, creating a unique and open range of scope and experience available to pupils.
The beautiful Fairlawn campus is an idyllic setting for the School’s numerous tennis courts, playing fields and cricket nets. In addition to our own swimming pool, our pupils have access to College’s pools, the Aquatic Centre’s Olympic-size, heated indoor pool and AstroTurf at the Diocesan School for Girls, as well as the squash courts at St Andrews College.

Each year, many of our Senior Prep sportsmen are offered the opportunity to participate in sporting tours.
