Sport is an integral part of life at Rookwood. Sport has many benefits that go beyond simply keeping fit; sport builds character, promotes team spirit and cooperation, develops resilience and confidence and most importantly it is fun!
Within the curriculum our pupils benefit from high quality, specialist teaching and a rich and varied curriculum. Our facilities are excellent with a state-of-the-art Sports Hall, pitches, tennis courts and a swimming pool.
We also believe in the importance of competition. Sport should be competitive and we ensure that our pupils have opportunities to compete in a range of sports against other schools. Regular fixtures in netball, football, rugby and cricket provide many chances for our secondary pupils to compete and we also organise fixtures for younger pupils too. Our pupils also have the opportunity to attend sports festivals and larger competitions such as the Independent Schools Association Athletics Festival.
Sport is also a key component of our extra-curricular programme and at Rookwood pupils will get the chance to enjoy new sports or develop further favourite ones. Activities such a trampolining, cross country, gymnastics and wall climbing all feature in our broader offer.
So whether it is part of the timetable, a fixture or an extra-curricular activity Rookwood School has something sporting to offer to all of our pupils.
