Cordwalles provides an activity for every individual at the school and is an integral part of the Cordwalles experience.
Grades 1 and 2 are offered mini-cricket, mini-soccer, mini-hockey and swimming with tennis and ball skills available to interested parties. The boys are instructed by at least eight male Student Masters (a ratio of 1:8).
Grades 3 – 7 are offered swimming, cricket, rugby, cross-country, athletics, tennis and hockey.
It is policy to provide a team for each boy and to ensure that all teams take part in regular and equitable fixtures. Cordwalles at present has twenty male sports coaches who are either members of the academic staff or resident boarder masters. Coaches attend regular clinics (both internally and externally), are enthusiastic and are well equipped to provide boys with an excellent grounding in all sports.
In addition to interschools fixtures, interhouse competitions are held in all activities and the school team represents us at Interprep activities. All our teams are competent, well drilled and always give an excellent account of themselves against any opposition.
