At the Old Vicarage School we like to achieve the best results we can in all that we do. Sport is no exception. Sport is a fantastic way for children to develop physically, mentally and socially. We take part in competitive fixtures with other schools and in local tournaments as regularly as possible. We rely on the talents of the children, on encouragement, and excellent coaching as well as on the support of parents.
The sports include: Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Soccer, Cross-Country Running, Swimming, Tennis, Athletics, Cricket, Rounders and Golf. The School plays many competitive fixtures with other preparatory schools, in varying age ranges. Transport is supplied be a local firm Benz Bavarian who generously allow us use of their minibus.
The world is a competitive place. Sporting endeavours and activities hold up a mirror to real life. Striving to achieve takes effort, ability, endurance and skill, everything that is required when playing sport. Sport is a tremendously social activity and can give its participants many life lessons and a tremendous sense of achievement.
Not everyone sees themselves as ‘sporty’. However, this should not hold them back. We offer something for everyone and a sport to suit each individual. Exercise is essential and we always encourage the children to strive towards ‘personal best’ performances. We try to find an enjoyable and rewarding sport for every child at the Old Vicarage School.
