Sport

Sport is important at Farringtons and through this we offer all pupils, whatever their ability, valuable team building and leadership experience.

Although close to London, Farringtons is fortunate to have outstanding sports facilities of its own, including 25 acres of grounds which house playing fields and excellent indoor facilities. We cater for a wide range of talents and our enthusiastic teachers urge all our pupils to find activities they really enjoy  at which they are able to excel.

Our Sports Hall is a two-storey building housing the main sports hall, a mirrored dance studio with sprung wooden floor, a fitness room (for use by Year 10 and above) and GCSE and A Level classrooms.

These superb sports facilities provide the opportunity for badminton, basketball, cricket, football, gymnastics, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby, tennis, trampolining and volleyball. We also offer athletics, cross-country running as well as swimming in our heated pool.

Fixtures and inter-house team matches are organised independently of clubs and School teams which compete successfully in local and county events. Talented individuals are encouraged to pursue their sporting skills to the highest standard; pupils entering into Year 7 may take the opportunity to apply for a Sports Scholarship.
