St George’s has an enviable reputation for its sport with particular strengths in netball, lacrosse and polo. Although St George’s is a relatively small school, we regularly win our matches and around eight girls will play lacrosse at county level and three, county netball, each year. Individual pupils at the school also play sport at international and national level and currently we have international show jumpers, water skiers and high level hockey players at the school. There is a wide variety of sports on offer, both within the curriculum and from an extra-curricular perspective, and we encourage the girls to be fit and healthy, take part, enjoy sport and work as part of a team – skills that are invaluable in later life.
Our facilities are tremendous and include six floodlit netball courts, eight floodlit tennis courts, three lacrosse pitches, a 400m track, discus cage and shot put area, long jump pit, four rounders pitches, dance studio and fitness suite, two squash courts and full size sports hall where we undertake fitness, badminton, gymnastics, trampolining, football, yoga, basketball, volleyball, cricket, netball and indoor hockey on a rotational basis during the year.
Girls play sport throughout their career at St George’s and for those who want to study PE, we offer both GCSE and AS in Physical Education.
In the winter and spring terms, girls at St George’s play lacrosse, netball and take part in gymnastics. During the second half of the spring term we train the girls in athletics and rounders and during the summer term the girls swim and play tennis.
There are five games periods a week for First Years and four from Second to Fifth Year. All Sixth Form students are timetabled for two double periods a week.
