Sport is intrinsic to everything we do at Walhampton. Helping our children excel, we believe in sport for all.


Sport is timetabled every day and is taught in groups of Years 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8. All sports are taught by specialist coaches to ensure children can develop their potential in the chosen sport, while comprehensive fixtures - against other schools and within our inter-house competitions - provide ample opportunities for all children to participate in matches within their age range.

An all-inclusive programme covers a wide range of activities, from sailing, archery, golf and fencing to traditional team games such as hockey, netball, rugby and football. Our facilities include a purpose-built sports hall, Astroturf pitch, long jump runway, 400m track, football and rugby pitches, netball court, outdoor swimming pool and cricket nets.

Whatever the activity, our approach is based on strong specialist coaching, team spirit, the benefits of competition and constantly improving your personal best.

We also welcome visiting schools to compete in various fixtures, while our extensive grounds are the perfect setting to host the Junior Wessex Athletics Championship and Perry Dalziel Cross-Country that welcomes hundreds of children and their families from both independent and state schools.
