Senior School Outdoor Pursuits

Sports play an integral role in the fabric of Farringtons, offering a platform for pupils of all abilities to partake in enriching experiences centred around teamwork and leadership development.

Despite our proximity to the bustling metropolis of London, Farringtons is fortunate to boast expansive sports facilities spanning 25 acres of maintained grounds. These include playing fields, sports hall, swimming pool, mirrored dance studio featuring a sprung wooden floor, a dedicated fitness room for pupils in Year 10 and above, and specialised classrooms for GCSE and A Level sports studies.

Within this backdrop, our passionate teachers and coaches empower pupils to explore a wide spectrum of sporting activities, encouraging them to discover their passions and hone their skills. Whether it’s on the field, in the gym, or within the modern confines of our sports hall, pupils are encouraged to push boundaries and strive for excellence.

What We Offer

We currently offer a wide range of sports in our PE lessons including Athletics, Football, Netball, Gymnastics, Swimming, Cross Country, Dance, Cricket, Tennis, Rounders and Basketball. As well as extra-curricular activities allowing our pupils to develop key skills and personal qualities that will prove valuable throughout their time at school and into the wider world.

Year 7 and 8 pupils can also participate in ‘How to Stay Alive’ as part of their Floreat lessons in our Forest School with activities that focus on ecology, survival, creating a settlement, composting, permaculture and cooking.

Aim For the Stars

In line with our commitment to fostering talent, Farringtons offers Sports Scholarships for pupils entering Year 7 who demonstrate exceptional athletic potential. This initiative provides a pathway for gifted individuals to receive additional support and resources to pursue their sporting ambitions at the highest level.

Beyond mere competition, our sports programme instils invaluable life skills such as resilience, discipline, and teamwork, preparing pupils for success both on and off the field. At Farringtons, we believe that sports are not just a pastime but a catalyst for personal growth, camaraderie, and lifelong wellbeing.
