St George's College believes that providing a variety of opportunities in sports for all is essential both for health and fitness reasons as well as the sense of achievement and value that active participation and successful competition bring.
This however, does not compromise our desire to fully extend our most talented performers and enable them to play at the highest possible standard. Students and teams regularly win trophies and national titles as well as representing their county and country throughout the three terms.
There is wide range of sports available and the main sports include boys' hockey, girls' hockey, rugby, netball, boys’ cricket, girls’ cricket, rowing and tennis. All students are encouraged to play fixtures at A and B (and C and D at Under 12 & Under 13) team level at all year groups with games being played on Saturdays in addition to some on weekdays.
The physical education programme offers a wide range of sporting activities including: badminton; gymnastics; dance; football; volleyball; athletics; basketball; and trampolining. Many of these options involve an inter-house competition organised by year groups.
In the Sixth Form, the Department offers highly successful AS and A2 courses in Physical Education. These multi-dimensional courses enable students from a wide variety of subject background to explore current issues in sport.
Each sport has specialist sports staff (including Physical Education), but alongside these coaches there is a wealth of knowledge given by members of the academic teaching staff as well as professional coaches in each sport.
The College sports facilities are excellent and are within the attractive College grounds and the rowers have use of their own Boat House at Walton on Thames.
