Healthy physical activity is a very important part of the development of each St Anne’s girl. All pupils are introduced to, and given coaching in, an extensive range of sports throughout the year and girls are expected to take at least one sport a term and up to a maximum of three.
St Anne’s has an excellent sporting tradition and is fortunate enough to enjoy spacious playing fields, including a Greenfield (our synthetic hockey surface), a heated swimming pool that doubles as a water polo venue (and also has its own diving well with 1m and 3m boards), an Indoor Centre, seven all-weather tennis courts, four glass-backed squash courts, two basketball courts and five netball courts. The school has a beautiful cross country course and a 200m athletics track.
St Anne’s successfully participates in the Midlands Schools’ and Zone 5 Leagues in most sporting disciplines. Many pupils have earned representative colours at district, provincial and national levels. At all times and at all levels, a spirit of fair play and sportsmanship is encouraged.
During the year, girls have the opportunity to go on local sporting tours and attend sporting festivals. A number of External Sports as well as Private Coaching is also on offer, however these do attract additional fees.
