The school sports facilities are the envy of many school as we use the Bank of England sports club as our home grounds. The facilities are truly exceptional and are just a brisk walk or short ride away. Here we enjoy access to a swimming pool, sports halls, squash courts, tennis courts, football pitches, rugby pitches and cricket wickets.
We teach PE and Games to all our boys from Reception to year 8. In the Junior School, there’s a PE, Games and Swimming lesson every week while Senior School boys enjoy one PE lesson and two full afternoons of games a week.
We keenly arrange matches and tournaments with other schools, and our sporting achievements are excellent. All our boys get the chance to experience the thrill and challenge of playing as team members, irrespective of sporting ability. Fixtures begin in year 3 and remain a high-profile part of Tower House.
The main three sports in games are football, rugby and cricket, however we also offer tennis, badminton, golf, hockey, squash, health related fitness, cross-country and athletics. Sport is an everyday part of school life, with the headmaster often be seen down at the sides of rugby, football and cricket matches. Outside lessons, we run after-school clubs for boys of all ages.
At Tower House, we actively look to give every boy a sporting opportunity. We encourage them to reach their potential, enjoying and participating each sports activity with smiles on their faces.
We offer bespoke sports coaching to ensure that every boy is stretched and advances as far as he can. We believe there’s a sport for every boy and that each should experience the excitement of playing sport as part of a team. Major sporting events include the Junior school swimming gala, whole school sports day, house football & hockey matches and whole school cross country race in Richmond Park.
We even have a staff cricket team, which plays fixtures locally.
