FOUNDED IN 1902, ST ANDREW’S IS A TOP INDEPENDENT, GIRLS-ONLY DAY AND BOARDING SCHOOL AND CO-EDUCATIONAL PRESCHOOL.

JUNIOR SCHOOL Sports

Our sports programme is a vital component of each girl’s education. Apart from enabling them to enjoy the many health benefits of physical activity, it provides them with yet another opportunity to grow in leadership ability and self-esteem.

Playing and excelling in sports teaches young people the importance of perseverance, teamwork and sportsmanship, while at the same time enabling them to experience the simple joy of using the physical body.

We encourage our girls to participate in a variety of sports at interhouse level. Sports on offer include:

  • Athletics
  • Cross-country
  • Swimming
  • Diving
  • Hockey
  • Netball
  • Tennis
  • Squash
  • Rowing
