Physical Education and Sport are central features of life for Box Hill students, which they experience through physical education lessons, the activities programme and competitive sport. Each of these opportunities offer a different emphasis for the individual.

Physical Education lessons aim to develop the physical, mental and social competencies of every student in the school. Lessons take place under the categories of KS3 Physical Education and GCSE PE Lessons will offer challenges which are appropriate and seek to develop and progress students at a rate in which they feel comfortable but stimulated. Over the course of an academic year, students will experience a variety of physical activities. We aim to instill in our students an enthusiasm for physical exercise and an understanding of its importance which they will take with them into adult life.

On top of PE lessons, Box Hill students also get the opportunity to participate in a range of recreational and competitive sports. Fixtures take place mainly on a Wednesday afternoon with the school fielding a team in every year group as well as some B teams. A regular fixture list is in place against a range of schools in the following sports:

  • Autumn Term: Boys Football, Girls Netball
  • Spring Term: Boys Rugby, Boys Hockey, Girls Netball, Girls Hockey
  • Summer Term: Boys Cricket, Girls Rounders, Girls Cricket

We also compete in cross-country, basketball, athletics and tennis. We encourage as many students as possible to get involved, however, by their very nature, teams are selective. For those not selected in teams, we run a coaching academy to help develop skills. There are also an enormous range of recreational physical activities on offer including martial arts, non-team games, high ropes, golf, swimming, climbing and fencing to name a few.

Each term there are also a number of 'Inter house school' events; 'Inter thirds' afternoons are highlights in the school calendar and they see our students competing across sports including Football, Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.

Sports tours are a regular occurrence and in recent years’ teams have visited South Africa, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Malta.
