Our Philosophy – Excellence and Sport for All

Sport plays a significant role in the life of King Edward’s School.  The School enjoys a strong sporting tradition, where all pupils are encouraged to take an active role in the curricular and co-curricular opportunities available to them. Each pupil is encouraged to develop their potential, creating the opportunity to allow later involvement at recreational level or within a competitive environment. We aim to nurture teamwork, leadership, commitment and a passion for sport through the opportunities available to all pupils at KES.

The Sports department aims to promote positive attitudes towards physical activity, laying the foundation for all pupils to be able to follow active and healthy lifestyles in the wider community.'

We strongly believe that 'Sport for All and Excellence' can co-exist, and to promote this we offer A, B and C teams throughout our fixture programme, run a weekly inter-form competition and are also very proud of our success on the regional and national stage.

We also value our links within the wider community through our work with Oroko Sports, Bath Cricket Club, Team Bath Super League, Team Bath Buccaneers Hockey Club and our work with local primary schools.

Touring is another important part of our sports programme. We aim to provide our pupils with the opportunity to participate in at least one major tour during their time at King Edward’s. Previous touring destinations have included Antigua, Barbados, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and France.
