At Kingsmead we encourage participation in sport as part of promoting a positive attitude to a healthy lifestyle. Kingsmead is a competitive small school, achieving excellent results at inter-school events.
We achieve this by employing top-graded coaches to complement the skills of our physical education teachers. We use our available sporting facilities to the fullest in order to provide an enjoyable and fulfilling sporting experience.
Two squash courts, a gymnasium, a 25m heated and floodlit pool with 3m and 1m diving boards and diving bubble, a 25m x 20m floodlit water polo pool, divers’ hot tub, five tennis courts/netball courts (one floodlit), a floodlit hockey astroturf and a small practice field for athletics.
We provide a variety of sports on both a social and team level. By exposing themselves to different experiences our students find their niche on the sporting field – we offer something for everyone. We encourage a positive competitive attitude, but do not lose sight of the values acquired along the way. A huge amount of team spirit is generated through house and school events.
Team spirit, teamwork and service to others is encouraged.
We have a carefully planned extra-curricular timetable which ensures that our teams have exposure to a wide variety of fixtures and festivals that take place throughout the year.
Tours are encouraged to embrace team spirit and to develop excellence in a sport. Tours are both national and international. Our next international sports tour is planned for 2020.
Regular netball, hockey, swimming, diving, water polo and athletics clinics take place pre-season.
