House Competitions

Inter-House competitions are held each year in rugby, football, cross-country, cricket and athletics. The Sports Calendar will give details of when these are held for each year group.

Parents are welcome to attend these House matches. A match tea is provided after rugby and cricket House matches.


Sports Day

The House Sports Day is held on a Saturday towards the end of Trinity (Summer) Term at the Donhead Sports Ground. Pre-Prep events are held in the morning and Prep School events in the afternoon. Prep School field events are held the evening before on the Lawn at the main school.

All boys take part in three events at Sports Day. Gold medals are awarded to every boy in the winning House, silver medals to every boy in the second placed House and bronze medals to every boy in the third placed House. The House Athletics Cup is awarded at the end of the afternoon session, together with the Victor Ludorum Award for the premier athlete of the day.
