Sport

The sports department at Grantleigh follows the LONG-TERM ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (LTAD) as proposed by Dr I Bayli. The core principles of this programme are lifelong participation, improved performance and physical literacy.

At junior and senior prep level the sports programme provides opportunities for the learners to develop physically and emotionally, and to cultivate a positive attitude towards physical exercise.

Our college learners are encouraged to participate in at least one sporting activity per term. Grantleigh promotes high levels of participation in sport. We nurture the fundamentals of enjoyment, teamwork, leardership, dealing with victory and loss as well as being good hosts to visitors.

The team spirit evident in Grantleigh’s sport has made all players heroes and all spectators proud to be part of this school.
