Summer Sporting Opportunities

Posted: 2nd May 2019 | Category: Headmaster's Blog

Welcome to the Summer Term! With Easter late this year we are cramming all the usual business into a short term and it will no doubt prove to be a fantastic few weeks ahead.

It is during the Summer Term that the school’s excellent provision in sport becomes most visible. A full programme of cricket, athletics, swimming and tennis enthuses staff, parents and pupils alike as we make the most of our beautiful grounds and setting. As always, the school provides opportunities for each individual whatever their level of confidence and ability: it is only through participation that children can realise their potential. The discipline, teamwork and competitive spirit that is developed through sport are vital for pupils’ overall development in preparation for future life and a core element of life at Skippers.

In addition to the usual round of events - all available to see in our online calendar - I am delighted that we will be holding our senior swimming gala at Eastbourne College this year. The College’s fantastic new facility will provide a very special setting for the children’s gala and will, I am sure, be memorable and inspiring for both pupils and parents.

I very much look forward to seeing you all at various matches and, of course, our sports day which is always a social highlight for our school community.

Best wishes,

Mark Hammond.
