Football – the people’s game – is our major sport in the Autumn Term, played by pupils of all ages.

The standard of facilities at our Sudbury Fields grounds is exceptional, with seven football pitches, the quality of which allows a collaborative passing style of football that fits with our player-centred approach to the game. A state-of-the-art all-weather pitch also enables a high number of after-school training sessions in the Spring Term.

Our age group squads consistently compete at the top level of local and national competitions. We also create opportunities for footballers of all standards to enjoy the opportunity of representing the School.

We are proud to take part in the Independent Schools Football Association Cup, Independent Schools League and the Middlesex Cup. The Senior teams play in the London Independent Schools Cup.

We run regular team tours abroad, in recent years visiting South Africa, Spain and Germany.
