Sport

Stacks Image 885
Pupils are encouraged to achieve their full potential. For many this will mean representing the school at district, county or even national and international level. A large number of past and present pupils have represented their country in sport at their age group level and indeed a number have now done so at senior level.

The school has many links with clubs and organisations who can provide opportunities outside of Wilson’s as well as a team of highly qualified staff with great expertise in one or more areas. In addition, many external coaches are used in games blocks to ensure a high quality delivery of the subject. Wilson’s has extensive facilities in a refurbished sports hall, provided with all the equipment necessary, including indoor cricket nets and bowling machine, a gym / table-tennis hall with climbing wall and an area for judo.

The outside facilities include:

  • 12 rubber crumb 5-a-side astroturf pitches and a larger 8-a-side pitch
  • 6 outdoor cricket nets
  • 4 football pitches
  • 1 rugby pitch
  • 2 cricket squares
  • Grid areas for training
There are also a number of sports clubs and facilities local to the school which are used during games afternoons.

All boys take part in inter-house competitions, not just the top performers. Wilson’s boys take part in district, county and national competitions, often reaching the final rounds; they have won a number of national titles. Extra-curricular sport takes place evenings and weekends throughout the year; the sports fields are always busy.

Wilson’s School values sport very highly, especially since all the boys have a chance to find an area in which they can develop their individual abilities.
