Sport

At Oakwood, we believe that many character strengths are built on the sports field: sportsmanship, self-confidence, self-discipline and the ability to work as a team.

Outdoor junior games are played at a private sports club in Warlingham which boasts large playing fields, a cricket pitch, several multi purpose courts (including netball, tennis and squash) as well as a pavilion. We are also fortunate enough to have highly qualified sports coaches for boys and girls separately.

Pupils have the opportunity of participating in a variety of different sports; netball, football, rugby, cricket, hockey, rounders, tennis and athletics.

‘Sport for all’ is our approach. We play regular matches against other schools and give each child an opportunity to represent Oakwood during their time at school. We have already acquired a formidable sporting reputation – especially in netball – with many wins against much larger and longer established schools. We also participate in football and rugby tournaments involving local schools.

We have a tradition of excellent support from parents who are encouraged to attend as many school matches as possible.
