Ambition and resilience are not just confined to the classroom. At The Village School for Girls we offer a broad range of sports aimed at inspiring and encouraging the girls to be active; to foster a real sense of teamwork and an ambition to challenge themselves and achieve; to know no boundaries, and above all, to have fun!

We constantly strive to invigorate the curriculum and are very fortunate to have an exciting partnership with Saracens Rugby and Saracens Mavericks Netball. This special association has enabled a host of exceptional opportunities for the girls including training with the Cincinnati Bengals NFL (professional American football league) team, forming the Guard of Honour and playing mini matches at the Stonex Stadium for a Saracens match, training with Super League Netball players and hosting elite netball camps at school.

Added to this, the school will team up with MMC cricket coaches in the summer, working to further build on the girls’ passion for the sport of cricket. Having professional players to coach sessions shows the girls the opportunities available to them and the importance and value of teamwork.

Whilst we have a fabulous outdoor space for sport, the school also takes full advantage of our proximity to Hampstead Heath and uses a local swimming pool for weekly, one-hour lessons for girls in Lower I, Upper I and Transition.

Girls play competitive netball, football, cricket and rounders fixtures with local prep schools throughout the year.

Extracurricular activities include fencing, football and rounders. The school runs a Sports Camp for Key Stage 2 girls during the holidays.

  • Netball
  • Football
  • Tag rugby
  • Swimming
  • Cricket
  • Rounders
  • Athletics skills
  • Dance & Ballet
  • Gymnastics (in Early Years)
