Stafford Preparatory School offers a comprehensive programme of physical education which embraces a wide range of activity for both boys and girls. The emphasis is on enjoyment, team spirit and the benefits of being physically fit.
During Stafford Prep’s first nine years, the children have achieved some spectacular successes on the sporting front winning over fifty trophies locally and nationally, including the ISA U11 national hockey tournament in 2016 which was played at the Olympic Park. There have been other national successes in football and cricket. The girls’ netball team has won the Stafford & District League & Cup double five times. The tag rugby team has represented the West Midlands on Finals Day in the Tag to Twickenham competition.
We encourage children to participate in sport outside school as well as for our own teams. A number of children have been chosen to represent the county at cricket and hockey and others have played for Academy teams at Manchester United, Stoke City, Aston Villa, Port Vale and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
All pupils have two weekly PE/Games sessions taken by specialist staff from Stafford Grammar and these are supplemented with a full programme of extra curricular clubs at lunchtime and after school.
Year 5 children go on a three day residential trip to one of the Kingswood Centres in North Wales and Year 6 pupils spend a week at Towers Outdoor Education Centre in Snowdonia.
