Sport and Exercise
We offer an extensive range of competitive sport training, inter-form activities and fitness programmes.
Girls can join teams that compete at county and national levels or participate for their own enjoyment, coached by our staff who are accomplished sports performers. There is truly something for everyone at every level in which to participate and enjoy.
Sports and fitness on offer includes:
|Running (Cross Country)|
|Strength and Conditioning|
We have a track record of outstanding success at the highest levels with girls winning county and national championships and titles, across multiple disciplines. King's High are currently fifth and 13th in the country respectively for Junior and Inter Girls Medley Relay. Current bronze medallists U15 national Water Polo Finals and National Clay Pigeon Champions 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.
We pride ourselves equally on the exceptional participation rate of our non-competitive sportswomen in our internal sports and exercise opportunities, from the recreational Gymnastics Club, on-site fitness suite or the Annual Inter-form Hockey and Netball.
The sports department comprises six full time members of staff, five part time - including our recently appointed hockey and netball professionals.
The girls are fortunate enough to have access to two Astroturf pitches, six netball courts, sports hall, fitness suite, a swimming pool and climbing wall.
From September 2019, we move to our new buildings on the Myton Road Campus. This includes new and upgraded sports facilities, including: a 3G rugby pitch, a suite of five netball courts and six tennis courts, extensions to the Bridge Sports Hall, and improvements to the grass pitches and landscaping. Find out more about Project One Campus.
Biannual Junior Hockey and Netball tours are organised to Holland and Jersey, and in their senior years at school, girls have the opportunity to travel further afield to destinations such as South Africa to play Hockey and Netball against South African schools and clubs. Other trips organised include ranching in Arizona, biannual ski trips and day trips in the UK to watch top performers.
