Physical Education

Sport is important at Farnborough Hill. Excellent facilities are available for activities and games, offering a real choice for all. The unstoppable enthusiasm of our teachers inspires a true love of sport amongst the pupils, and we want everyone to feel confident and comfortable with their chosen activities, regardless of ability. We aim for each girl to leave our school with a lifelong desire to stay healthy and active.

All the Physical Education staff are involved in class, club and team activities. Organising, coaching, umpiring, and generally supporting each other in our efforts to offer as wide an educational experience as possible.
