The Sports and Outdoor Pursuits Department offers every child a great deal of variety. The boys learn skills in football, rugby, hockey, cricket, tennis and gymnastics, and the girls play netball, hockey, rounders, tennis and gymnastics. They enjoy participating in athletics and have gained great success in cross-country events against local opposition.
We are particularly proud of our recent success in the IAPS swimming nationals and have, on a regular basis, qualified for the finals in the ESSA Competition and Schools National Final of the Aquathlon.
In true Barfield style, the children also enjoy the range of Three Peaks Barfield adventure activities as part of their Sports and Outdoor Pursuits programme.
Matches are usually organised on a Wednesday afternoon and Inter-class competitions allow all children to participate and feel part of a team. There is an open invite to parents to come along to support their children and experience the Barfield match tea. Matches are played against schools including Edgeborough, Lanesborough, Greenfield, Guildford High, Alton School, Conifers School, Cranleigh School, St Nicholas and more.
