Abingdon Prep offers boys a full and diverse range of sports and activities to suit all abilities and interests. Sport is carefully tailored to each age group and is very much focused on enjoyment and integrating activity as part of health and well-being.


Talented staff provide coaching and encouragement at all levels and boys frequently reach very high standards, representing clubs, county and regional squads in a wide range of sports. External coaches with specialist skills complement the School’s staff, offering additional support and expertise.

The School is set in extensive grounds with acres of sports pitches for cricket, rugby, football and cross-country as well as a multi-activity sports hall, cricket nets and an indoor heated swimming pool. The new multi-use Astroturf enables all weather hockey and tennis. Teams compete in inter-school fixtures as well as tournaments and festivals throughout the year. Please see our Fixtures and Results page for further details.

Team as well as individual sport is encouraged with every child from Year 3 upwards given the opportunity to represent the school in matches on a regular basis.

The School is proud of its sporting history and the diverse opportunities it offers to all its pupils. By browsing through the sections below, you can see the sports available as part of the curriculum as well as our Other Half sports which provide a wide range of additional opportunities.
