Sport runs deep through the veins of Finborough. The paramount importance of athletic endeavour can be seen in our pupils on so many levels. Their physical wellbeing and fitness is enhanced tremendously by the active life they enjoy at Finborough. We are strong believers that a healthy body is inextricably linked to a healthy mind.
Sport provides an outstanding opportunity to develop key qualities including perseverance, determination, leadership and collaboration; set aside a healthy competitive spirit which is balanced with deeply embedded humility and honour.
At Finborough students will enjoy two afternoons of sport a week focusing on their personal development and understanding in a variety of sports. Girls will have a term of Hockey, a term of Netball and in the Summer Athletics, Cricket and Rounders. The Boys will have a term of Rugby, a term of Football and in the summer Athletics and Cricket. We also run an excellent tennis program throughout the year. Students are fully supported and their fitness needs enhanced through access to our full-time strength and Conditioning Coach and Sports Physiotherapist.
In addition to their sport afternoons, students will benefit from an hour of PE lessons a week during which they will have the opportunity to experience a variety of other sports including basketball, badminton, dodge-ball, table tennis, softball and volleyball. Our younger students will develop their understanding through a game-based curriculum where fundamental transferable skills will be practiced in a fun and inclusive environment.
Regular competition in local and National ISA events, as well as inter school fixtures allow our students to test themselves and experience the thrill of competing. Our pupils are proud to be part of great teams frequently achieving exceptional results, including national medals and trophies; always metered with a profound ‘Better Never Stops’ mindset.
Our children enjoy the use of our ever-growing outstanding facilities that inspire great commitment and motivate everyone from our targeted elite athletes to those who have so much fun immersed in the multitude of sporting opportunities on offer.

Coupled with our extensive facilities we always want our students to achieve at the highest level and so have developed strong pathway links with numerous outside clubs and other elite academies.
