An Overview

2 2 2

There are four Sports Academies at Bede's which run from the Prep School through to the Senior School and which encompass Cricket, Football, Hockey and Tennis, and we have won County, Regional and National titles in each during the last six years.

Additionally, we have over twenty Sports Clubs including in NetballBasketball, Rugby, Swimming and Squash, all of which also compete nationally and in some cases internationally and in which we have also claimed a significant number of team and individual honours.

The value of the camaraderie and fellowship that sport fosters in participants cannot be understated, and just as our players commit to their teams we commit to their success, with every new pupil enjoying the opportunity to have a personalised fitness plan generated specifically for them by our full-time Strength and Conditioning Coach which suits their passions, lifestyle and body type.

Our campus includes our Sports Complex, within which we have an 8-court Multi-Purpose Sports Hall, our Fitness Suite, 4 squash courts and a competition-size swimming pool.

Elsewhere across Bede's 140 acres we also boast an international standard floodlit water-based Hockey Pitch, a Multi-Use Games Area, all-weather Tennis Courts, numerous grass pitches and cricket ovals and a practise golf course.

While facilities are obviously important, what truly sets Bede's apart is our coaches, which include a number of ex-England and British sportsmen and women. Their passion is truly infectious and genuinely inspiring, with their coaching sessions reinforced by a comprehensive fixture list that ensures every Bedian the opportunity to represent the school in at least one sport of their choice during their time here.

This dedication in turn ensures that the tradition of school sport for which we are known will continue to thrive long into the future.

Coming from my background in the professional leisure industry, I can say with some authority that the opportunities Bede's students have, both in terms of coaching and facilities, are absolutely outstanding.
