Why is sport important at Hatherop Castle?

Sport is about providing support to those who aspire to compete at the highest level, whilst offering opportunity and encouragement to those pupils who simply want to enjoy their sport and physical activity. At Hatherop Castle a range of sports are offered to our pupils. External coaches with specialist skills are brought in to complement our staff team, offering additional support and expertise. The focus this week has been on tag rugby in Prep 3. Rugby brings benefits such as: team skills, social interaction, communication skills and self-discipline. The boys have been developing their passing skills and spatial awareness, whilst enjoying playing against a number of schools in a mini tournament.
