Sports Focus

Registration for prospective entry in September 2021 is now closed, but you are still very welcome to enjoy this Sports Focus.

PE, Games and Co-curricular Sport are a hugely important part of life at Alleyn's. Sport at Alleyn’s sets our pupils in good stead for life by providing opportunities for technical and tactical development alongside the growth of positive attitudes and attributes. We combine a developmental philosophy with a late-specialisation, long-term model to enable every pupil to achieve their potential. Whether as a multi-sport performer playing their part in an expansive fixture programme or competing on the regional, national or international stage in a chosen discipline; commitment, effort, determination and the resulting progression are all held in high regard at Alleyn’s. We encourage our pupils to bring the independence, creativity and bravery they learn through sport to bear on their studies and other aspects of school life. 

The short film below has been created by our team to give you a flavour of sporting life and values at Alleyn's. You will hear from Director of Sport Mr Gavin English, and most importantly, see a number of our pupils in sporting action. We hope that you enjoy this presentation, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

With best wishes, The Alleyn's School PE Department

"There are so many opportunities at Alleyn’s.  I’ve been encouraged to try a bit of everything this year and find out what activities suit me. I’ve been doing Water Polo since Year 7 and this year our team won the girls’ U13 National Finals AND the mixed team National Finals. I’m really proud of us, particularly as we were sometimes the only mixed team competing against all boys.  It just shows what you can do if you practice hard and have a good team spirit.

I also play girls’ cricket and girls’ football which I like because you get the opportunity to mix with players from other years.  There are lots of opportunities to play competitively against other schools, but also we do a lot of sport for fun, such as inter-form softball or rounders.  This year I’ve been doing discus in athletics, which is something I’ve never tried before. I’ve discovered I’m quite good at it – which has been a nice surprise!"
