The King's School Grantham

Isaac Newton's School

    Sport

     

    There is a very strong tradition of sporting excellence at King's.  PE and Games form part of the curriculum for all pupils.  Our aim is to involve as many pupils as possible by offering a wide range of activities, during and after the school day.

    There is an extensive range of extra-curricular matches against other schools, many of them against leading independent schools and played on a Saturday.  There are Inter-House competitions in a variety of sports, and a range of extra-curricular sports clubs, so the great majority of pupils have the opportunity to be involved in some way.

    In recent years there have been sports tours to South Africa, Australia, Canada and Barbados.  Each year there is also a ski trip to either America or Europe.

    King's individuals and teams enjoy considerable local and national success. It is our aim to maintain the strength and breadth of sport at King's.  We believe strongly that representing the school is a privilege, and our policy is that if an individual is selected to play for the school, then that represents a priority engagement over other activities.
