Sport

Find your game

Sport is not only about maintaining a fit and healthy body, but also about having a respect for rules and training, a willingness to compete and fight for others and, of course, having fun along the way.

We have an impressive range of modern facilities that we encourage pupils to take full advantage of, with numerous sports pitches, tennis, squash and basketball courts, cricket nets, two gymnasiums and two climbing walls to name but a few.  Trying and appreciating new sports is an important part of the OSH experience.

We take great pride in the sporting reputation we have successfully built over the years.  With amazing dedication from all those involved, we are fortunate enough to have outstanding coaching talent, facilities and opportunities available for all our pupils to pursue and develop their sporting interests.

Basketball, cricket, football, athletics, and netball, enjoy considerable strength, and many of our teams are regional league winners.  We are possibly most well-known for our rugby and, with strong ties to clubs across the region, we’ve seen our pupils represent the school regionally, nationally and internationally in South Africa, New Zealand and Argentina.  Our 1st XV and U15s are also national champions having both played and won their respective Continental Tyres Vase Finals at Twickenham in March 2023.

Sport is everyone coming together.  It always just resolves around your friends and it's a great community.

"Our specialists and professional coaches bring with them wide experience of playing and coaching at representative or international levels.  Every encouragement is given to the pupils to realise their full sporting potential whilst at OSH.  We seek to strike a balance between performance and participation, not only enabling our most skilled sportspeople to achieve excellence, but also catering to the needs of all cohorts in the games curriculum or co-curricular clubs which support deep learning, and valuable social and moral lessons."

Mr. Daniel Bassett, Subject Leader of Physical Education
