Sport is an important part of life at Stowe.
Our aim at Stowe is to offer a sports programme that makes a substantial positive contribution to the all-round education of our pupils. We work alongside the academic programme with a structure that allows pupils to engage with sport at a participation or performance level. This is reflected in the School day; pupils have the opportunity to participate in sport every afternoon and not just during timetabled lessons.
Throughout all sports our aimis to educate pupils, through enjoyable, progressive, stimulating experiences, in both competitive and collaborative settings, enabling individuals to develop their character by learning resilience, respect for others and the value of teamwork and discipline.
We aim to instil knowledge and skills that enable Stoics to lead a healthy, active life beyond Stowe and also have the potential to achieve sporting success at an individual level.
We encourage Stoics to take part in multiple sports, with late specialisation, which leads to the development of a broad range of transferable skills.
We are confident that Stowe can support our high performance athletes to reach their ambitions. We currently have double figures of sportsmen and women competing in their sport at a National level and many more involved with Academies or County teams. The Stowe 1st teams compete at the top level of National school sport and we enjoy regular fixtures each Saturday against schools in the very competitive Midlands League, this allows up to 35 teams across a range of sports to have competitive opportunities.
Sporting success is measured not only in results, but also in participation and enjoyment. At Stowe we aim for all Stoics to participate and enjoy sport, not only during their time at Stowe but for the rest of their lives.
