Sport

Sport is on offer to all age groups at The Doon School. All year groups have PE classes each day timetabled in to the curriculum. It plays a central role in supporting the ethos of the school and a first class education. The Doon School has a strong reputation for sport and there is a demanding and growing fixture list, with depth in teams, backed up by extensive playing fields and facilities. The majority of boys flourish in school or house teams, while some progress to district, state and national level. There is an opportunity for all pupils to maximise their potential via an extensive co-curricular programme which is second-to-none. Boys can participate in a rich range of sports commensurate with their abilities and every boy should be able to find a skill to become engaged in. Teamwork is fostered, leaders are identified and developed and boys learn much about themselves and others; sport is a vehicle for personal development. The school benefits from a team of expert professional coaches. In addition, the academic staff are enthusiastically committed to helping deliver the extensive sports programme. Tours and pre-season training: The major sports are soccer, cricket and hockey. Other sports taken almost all the year round are swimming and basketball. Individual sports played all the year round are all racket sports.
