At Culford Pre-Prep & Nursery, sport is a part of all children’s everyday curriculum. Alongside literacy and numeracy, the pupils enjoy many sports during their time here and are able to work with specialised sports teachers throughout their time at the School. As well as this, all pupils have access to the brilliant sporting facilities at Culford including the six lane 25m heated indoor pool, champion standard four court Indoor Tennis Centre and purpose built Sports and Tennis Centre.

Sport at Culford Nursery

Pre-Prep Tiny Tots Tennis

Culford Nursery pupils have dedicated PE sessions, led by Nursery staff. These normally take place inside Weston Hall based in Culford Pre-Prep but in the summer may be taken on the outdoor space surrounding the school. As well as their timetabled lessons, Nursery children are able to take part in specialised Tiny Tots Tennis sessions each Friday morning before school. These sessions are led by tennis coaches from the Sports and Tennis Centre and teach young children the principles of hitting, serving and co-ordination. Pupils can also take part in individual tennis and swimming lessons.

Throughout the year a wide range of sports are covered including basic ball skills, hockey, rugby, netball, gymnastics, dance, tennis and swimming. Pupils are taught catching and throwing, receiving and sending. They work on spatial awareness and listening by following instructions.

Sporting Events

There are several opportunities for the pupils to showcase their sporting abilities throughout the year. At the end of the autumn term (December), the children take part in their annual Dance Show for parents, friends and teachers. In the summer term, there is a Tennis Tournament and a Sports Afternoon where parents are invited to watch their children compete against other houses. Another sporting highlight of the year is the annual Swimming Gala.
