Competitive Sport

The QEGS attitude to sport is all-inclusive and exemplifies participation and teamwork. 

QEGS enjoys regular outstanding success in local and national competitions, with sporting opportunities for all abilities. Boys have so much to gain from the physical challenges of sport. As well as improving their physical fitness and self-discipline, they learn to appreciate fair play and sportsmanship.

The main school sports - Rugby, Cross Country, Cricket, Athletics, Chess and Swimming have regular inter-school fixtures. At interhouse level, boys compete in all these sports plus Soccer.

A busy fixture list is organised at U9, U10 and U11 in the main sports, and where possible, B-F fixtures are created to involve as many boys as feasible. Junior School teams regularly enjoy outstanding success in all sports in local and national competitions, a combination of the sporting talent and belief demonstrated by the boys complimented by comprehensive squad training delivered during the school year.

Sports Dinners, Tours and the annual all inclusive Sports Days add the extra dimension to sport at QEGS.
