We are blessed at Ashdown with magnificent facilities and pitches. Three tennis courts, an indoor swimming pool, an indoor play area, a nine hole golf course and wide open flat fields give every child the opportunity to excel under expert coaching.
The importance of sport is undeniable. Sport provides a necessary outlet for many children on all sorts of different fronts. The health aspect is obvious as well as the need to learn how to play together and as a team. So much can be learnt from the playing fields and so much enjoyment is had by all involved.
Children enjoy competition and although we deliberately remind the children that sport is for fun, we enjoy the feeling of winning competitive fixtures against our neighbouring schools. Sportsmanship however will remain the most vital factor and we constantly remind ourselves that our behaviour both on and off the pitch and how we are as hosts is more essential than the final result.
