Sport has a strong historical position within the School, and has produced achievers of note in the national and international arenas including Monty Panesar (Cricket) and Tim Foster (Rowing). Our philosophy centres on the development of the whole person – body, mind and spirit – and we pursue it rigorously.
We have a very proud and successful sporting tradition and our aim is to ensure this continues in the future. Sport and physical activities play an important part in school life and are vital in the development of our students. We offer a variety of opportunities with staffing, resourcing and period allocation all reflecting the high priority given to sport and exercise within the School.
Throughout their time at BMS, our students have the opportunity to be involved in many different sports and clubs, regardless of ability. We currently offer more than 30 different physical activities, with more than 100 teams and 1000 fixtures during the year. There are regular tours for Rugby Union, Hockey, Football, Netball and Cricket along with training camps for Rowing. We also have an extensive House Programme which allows students to compete in more than 20 different sports.
The benefits of sport and physical activity are considerable and well documented. We hope that all students will leave BMS with a desire to continue taking part in regular exercise in an activity or sport they have discovered in their time here.
