Sport plays an integral part in the day to day lives of pupils at Mayville. Through an extensive range of sports, pupils are given opportunities to develop their skills and techniques as well as their ability to work as part of a team.

Taking part in sport not only encourages pupils to lead a healthy life, but it also promotes the importance of respect, fair play, determination and cooperation.

Sports taught to the boys during their time in Pre-Prep and Juniors include: ball skills, football, rugby, badminton, basketball, cricket, swimming, athletics and table tennis. Girls are given the opportunity to learn: gymnastics, dance, ball skills, netball, hockey, badminton, rounders, swimming and athletics .

In addition to their weekly P.E lessons, all pupils take part in a number of inter-house sports events throughout the year. As well as inter-house events in many of the sports listed above, there are also the special occasions such as Sports Day, cross country competitions and swimming galas.

During their time in the Junior school, pupils will also have the chance to represent Mayville, competing against other schools in a mixture of leagues, tournaments and friendly fixtures. 

Sport plays an important part in the all round development of children. At Mayville, all pupils, whatever their sporting ability, will have the chance to play, learn, develop and have fun.
