Pupils experience a wide range of sports including football, hockey, rugby, netball, cricket, athletics, cross country running, swimming and tennis.
hey are given opportunities to develop their skills and warmly encouraged to be the best they can be. The aim is for all children to develop an enthusiasm for sport that will be carried with them into healthy, active lifestyles long into the future. The children’s performance and achievements in sport are outstanding, with impressive successes recently in football, gymnastics, cross country, judo and tennis, and teams competing at regional and national levels.
A family school with a very special atmosphere, Russell House is the perfect size for staff to genuinely get to know children as individuals and offer tailored opportunities to become self-reliant, self-aware and achieve the very best according to their gifts.
