Sport

Rokeby has a history of significant sporting achievement.

As well as sporting excellence, we value the individual improvement made by each boy through our underlying philosophy of sport for all. We believe that Sport, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a boy’s physical development and well-being.

Our broad and balanced physical education curriculum and Games programme develops boys’ self-confidence and ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.

We are determined to find a sporting passion in each and every boy. We offer a curriculum and activities programme that exposes them to as wide a range of sports as possible.

   

Facilities

Rokeby Sports Ground (RSG) is our wonderful 10-acre site in Worcester Park, maintained to the highest standards, where our boys go for their sport once a week in Reception to Year 2 and twice a week from Year 3 onwards. After school training also takes place at RSG. There is a pavilion with showers, changing rooms and a commercial kitchen. The school regularly hosts matches and tournaments here.

On the main school site the school hall also gives a flexible capacity for varied indoor games and gymnastics. The Astroturf and playground facilities, within the grounds, provide excellent cricket nets, a tennis court and a superb surface for football and hockey.

Physical development

An important part of a boy’s development is physical. He needs to expand the potential of his growing body and develop the skills and habits to enable him to enjoy the benefit of Sport throughout his life.

Physical Education and Games are an integral part of the daily timetable. The main Games are association football in the Autumn term, rugby union and cross-country in the Spring term, and cricket and athletics in the Summer term. Physical Education is a regular part of the curriculum. Basketball, badminton, fencing, golf, karate, judo, skiing, swimming, table-tennis and tennis are also available.

In recent years our boys have achieved Sports scholarships to Dulwich College, Epsom College, Reed’s School and Whitgift School.
