Promoting a balanced and healthy lifestyle whilst mastering new skills.
Sport is central to life at Queen Mary’s School and many teams across the year groups have had successes at local, county, regional and national level. From Lacrosse to Swimming, Hockey to Trampolining, there is a Sport for you and inclusivity is key.
100% of Prep School girls and 88% of Senior girls competed for the school in at least one sport in the last academic year promoting a balanced and healthy lifestyle, confidence and competitive spirit.
It is a priority to make every child feel safe and supported within the lesson and to strive to improve within their own capabilities. We provide opportunities for you irrespective of your ability to be creative, competitive and to face different challenges as an individual, in groups and as part of a team.
