Port Regis has a nationwide reputation for the quality of its sports provision for under 13s and welcomes visiting teams from abroad as well as sending out its top teams overseas on tour. We are one of the IAPS’s selected venues for its national tournaments in netball and we host a large number of high profile events in rugby sevens, athletics and cross-country.
For boys the main team games are rugby, football, hockey and cricket. Girls are coached predominantly in hockey, netball, rounders and tennis as well as a little lacrosse. The school has its own astroturf pitch for all-weather play, a nine-hole golf course, a rifle range and extensive playing fields marked out freshly each week for matches against other schools in the region. Parents from all schools are warmly welcomed on match days to cheer their children on.
The school’s indoor sports complex, which comprises two sports halls opened by the Princess Royal and Her Majesty the Queen in 1980 and 1990 respectively, serves as a National Centre for Junior Gymnastics and facilitates expert coaching with the finest equipment for beginners and national team members alike. We also have two squash courts, a heated swimming pool, indoor cricket nets, and marked-out spaces for judo, karate, badminton, basketball, volleyball and fencing.
