Sport forms an important part of life at Chesham Prep School. From Reception all of our children get to experience a wide variety of different sporting activities through PE and games lessons as well as in a wide variety of clubs.

The ethos of the sports department is very much one that every child be given the opportunity to develop their potential to the very best of their abilities. With this in mind, the children receive coaching from experienced teachers, each with their own fields of expertise. All children get the opportunity to play in competitive matches, through fixtures against other schools from Year 3 and during our House competitions. The emphasis is always on enjoyment with the aim that our children leave us with a love of sport and a desire to continue participating which will stay with them throughout their life.

School fixtures are the highlight of the week. We run teams at every age group and include as many children as possible in an extensive list of competitive matches against local schools. Teams compete at district, regional and national level.

Central to the approach to sport at Chesham is our dedication to teamwork and fitness. Children are taught the benefits to health that daily exercise provides. Children are encouraged to work together for a common aim and are taught the importance of winning with grace and losing with dignity. The school has high expectations of all of our children; that they will display excellent levels of courtesy, good manners and a high level of sportsmanship at all times, whilst being good guests or hosts.
