10 Acres of Sports Fields
At Richmond House School, we believe strongly in the lessons of teamwork, personal achievement and the immeasurable benefits of regular exercise that can be achieved through sport.
The school enjoys the benefit of its own extensive 10 acres of fields, providing the opportunity for cross country running, football and rugby pitches, a cricket square, netball and tennis courts, athletics facilities, two pavilions and, uniquely, crown green bowling and petanque facilities.
We pride ourselves in using our wonderful facilities to offer the children a vast range of sport, in curriculum PE lessons, after-school Sports Clubs and afternoon Games lessons. We have established an extensive fixtures programme, giving the children access to play and enjoy competitive sport against other schools. We also compete in regional and national competitions in selected sports, as well attending cross-country events and swimming galas throughout the school year.
The school operates an inclusive sports policy whatever a child’s ability and, with the wide range of sporting activities on offer, all children are given a chance to find a sport they enjoy and to represent their school in sports teams and house sports events.
