Promoting a healthy mind in a healthy body.
Our high-quality teaching and coaching, along with excellent facilities, enable our young sportsmen and women to participate in teams and competitions at a very high level. Our students participate in local, regional and national competitions, and they get the opportunity to develop and hone their skills alongside their peers. We currently have teams for football, cricket, basketball, netball, rounders, cross-country, athletics, table tennis and badminton, and we have links with local squash and rowing clubs.
However, at the Latymer School, we are firm believers in mens sana in corpore sano (a healthy mind in a healthy body). Students are able to join sporting clubs and groups which are for fun and enjoyment, helping them to relax and unwind after their hard work in the classroom. The school is lucky to have its own fitness suite with cardio machines and weights area.
House sport is very popular and students represent their colours in lessons and at Sports Day. The competition is always very fierce and well-supported by all students.
There are regular netball trips to Condover and visits to the Copper Box to see London Pulse and the England Roses. We also go to play football in Cyprus and Barbados and ski in Austria.
