With a long boarding school day there is much time devoted to Sport. Each form has P.E. as part of the curriculum and there are daily games in addition.
The principal games for boys are Rugby, Hockey, and Cricket; and for girls Netball, Hockey and Rounders.
Children also play Football, do Athletics, Cross Country Running and Swimming, either in the school's heated outdoor pool or indoors in Dunbar. During the winter months, for those not involved in matches there are regular trips to Eyemouth Swimming Pool for lessons.
Amongst the other sports on offer are Tennis (two grass courts and four on astroturf), Golf on the Winterfield course just out through the back gate, Judo and, in the Easter Term, Skiing at Hillend.
Enthusiastic, well-coached teams of all ages enjoy an enviable record of success but the emphasis is on introducing children to a wide variety of activities and to giving as many as possible the opportunity to represent the school.
