Sport is a vital part of life at Eaton House Belgravia. We believe that being regularly active enhances the children's physical and emotional health, and we ensure that all our pupils spend several hours in training each week.
The Pre-Prep boys are exposed to a wide variety of curricular and extracurricular sports. A combination of onsite PE lessons and offsite games and swimming sessions enables the boys to develop key sporting skills. Eaton House Schools is considered a very 'sporty' group of schools, perhaps due to the number of specialist and outside coaches we employ to improve the boys' skills and their sporting range.
The games we practise include cricket, tag rugby, cross-country, football, swimming, tennis and golf and a range of athletics, including track, long jump and high jump. There are clubs for a number of sports, including a pre-season cricket club and football club.
Colours are awarded for the highest levels of sporting achievement. Regardless of whether boys are awarded colours, we ask that they play with passion, commitment and team spirit. There are also plenty of sporting inter-house competitions including prizes for football, cross-country, cricket and sports day.
Sport helps the pupils' physical and emotional health as well as teaching them to be a part of a team representing the school and their house. Every boy joins in, and that is very important for building confidence, team spirit, sociability and overall house spirit.
Eaton House Belgravia Pre-Prep has access to swimming facilities, tennis courts and a golf course, and Battersea Park and Clapham Common for games.
In school, sport is centred on the house system and there are a number of house-specific competitions. Boys love to win points for their house and all the boys cheer each other on at all sporting events, which is a lovely feeling for the participating boys.
