The School enjoys considerable success on the sports field and is determined to provide as many youngsters as possible with opportunities to play representative sport and also to cater for those who enjoy sport purely as a recreational activity.
Autumn and Spring sports for girls include hockey and netball and for the boys rugby and soccer. In the Summer Term girls do rounders, tennisand athletics, boys do cricket, tennis and athletics. Pupils also enjoy swimming each term at Bath University's 25m pool.
In addition to the games programme pupils participate in a P.E programme which includes both dance and gymnastics. There are also many sports opportunities as part ofthe activities programme including cross country running, judo, street dance, fencing, golf, athletics. Please note that activities vary slightly each term according to the season.
There is an excellent range of clubs and activities offered each term, some old favourites such as chess, table tennis, drama, animation, fencing etc and lots of new ones for children to try as well. For the Spring Term we have a new gardening club, yoga, and press gang - a club to inspire budding journalists. At King Edward's Junior School we encourage everyone to challenge themselves to a new experience every term, after all you may surprise yourself and find it's the best club you ever did.
A number of activity days take place over the weekend, usually Saturday morning, these range from House Tournaments, special interest workshops on a number of different themes such art, cookery or cycle maintenance and every term there is a family activity such as a cycle ride or ramble.

During the Autumn and Spring Terms children enjoy a number of Activity Days where children from all year groups join with other members of their House to enjoy a day trying a new activity together. Previous Activity Days have included activities such as Making an Animated film, Circus skills and an adventure in the countryside building dens and simple bushcraft.
One of the highlights of the school year is a residential trip which takes place during the Summer term. Year groups enjoy a few nights away from home taking part in team games or learning new skills such as kayaking or putting their French to good use on a trip to France.
