Sport

A love of movement and sporting competition is carried by Kent College pupils into the future. We play over 150,000 hours of sport each year across two sport halls, a full-size astro, nine netball courts, seven tennis courts, an indoor climbing wall, fitness suite, athletics track, cross country course, trampolines and top level gymnastics facilities. And a new indoor swimming pool is being built.

There is a sport for everyone. There are opportunities for the highest performing athletes and opportunities for those who simply relish participation.

COMPETITION

From Prep to Sixth Form, pupils compete in team and individual sports including netball, hockey, cricket, tennis, swimming, athletics and cross country. We have an equestrian team and a gymnastics squad.

Pupils can chose to attend team trials for squad selection and will join weekday and Saturday matches and training sessions. Additional training takes place early morning, in PE and the weekly Sport and Wellbeing lessons.

Sport and Wellbeing

Ethos

Stepping out of the classroom and into a headspace is central to the Kent College ethos. In addition to PE lessons all Prep and Senior pupils have a timetabled Sport and Wellbeing lesson each week to take part in activities to promote a balanced lifestyle with time off from academic studies.


Activities

A wide range of activities are on offer including climbing, pilates, mindfulness, debating, rock choir, photography, dance, boxing, self-defence, yoga and community service. Additional team sport training also happens during these sessions.
