Caterham School enjoys an enviable reputation for producing highly successful individual and team performances across a wide range of sports with first class facilities onsite.
At Caterham, sport is an essential part of the educational process for all of our pupils. The programme is built on the belief that engaging in sport and physical activity allows individuals to realise their full potential. Effort, commitment and consistency are key pillars of the programme that enable all pupils to feel success and joy whilst also building real life resilience.
Caterham sport is made up of three strands: PE, Games and Turnouts.
Staff and pupils alike are proud to be a part of the Caterham Sport team, which is supported by an extensive fixture programme, each weekend we field A to D and E team fixtures to ensure all pupils can experience and enjoy their sport. Regular inter-House competitions augment the opportunities for positive sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership for all pupils.
Caterham holds an enviable reputation for supporting highly successful individual and team performances across a wide range of sports. For those pupils who are passionate about pursing their sport we have a highly skilled and dedicated team of sport staff who hold a breadth of professional competitive sports experience, many of whom are still in active coaching roles outside of school. Pupils benefit from the professional level support offered through our Caterham Athelete Programme – click to read more. The exceptional sporting facilities which make all of this possible include some of the very best grass pitches in the south of England, a floodlit Astroturf, a 25 metre indoor swimming pool, five netball courts and a fully equipped double sports hall. The School is also very fortunate to have a new sports pavilion and bar that offers spectators an unrivalled match-day experience. The School also makes use of its additional sports grounds at Hill Field, a short walk from the main school site. A £3m new pavilion with hospitality and changing facility was opened by Matt Dawson in December 2017.
