Sport is a very important feature of life at St Paul's. Achievement is recognised and applauded at school level, in House competitions and against other schools.

Our aim is to enable all our children to achieve their potential through physical activity, nurture confidence and instil the values of sportsmanship and fair play as well as the intrinsic desire to win. Maximum participation is encouraged and effort is praised at every level. Most importantly, we aim to give our children a real desire to take sport into the next part of their lives, whether recreationally or at a highly competitive level. We offer a range of sports and encourage a positive attitude towards sport and health- related fitness.


PE is taught by a specialist PE teacher throughout the school and includes athletics, dance, games and gymnastics. Outdoor adventurous activities are also developed through our residential visits' programme.


Each year group has an morning of specialist games coaching. Fixtures against other schools are played throughout the year..


St Paul's enjoys access to very good facilities. PE lessons are taught either in the school hall or the school playground. Games lessons are taught in Battersea Park, Victoria Park, Regent's Park and at Coram's Fields.


There are many opportunities for children to represent the school in the following sports:

Boys Football/Girls Football





Unihoc\Short Tennis(Year 3 Only)





Large squads are chosen and care is taken to explain why children are included or excluded from teams and how to cope with success as well as disappointment. All children will experience competition through the programme of house matches played during the year.

We encourage parents to support our teams where possible.
