ACS Egham students love being Jaguars. Through competitive and non-competitive sports, all enjoy the benefits of improved health and greater self-confidence in the abilities and capabilities.
The acres of facilities around the campus – which include a multi-purpose Sports Centre – make sports accessible, inviting, and an intrinsic part of school life.
Playing in a team is one part of school life we believe every student should experience, whatever their level. Our programme is positive, inclusive, and encourages students to be well-rounded individuals. From personal fitness classes to highly competitive Varsity teams, we take most pride in the fact that almost every one of our students will be a part of our programme during their time with us.
Woodlee Sports Centre
A new sports centre opened in September 2012, and facilities include a dance studio, fitness suite, two FIBA basketball courts, an indoor climbing wall and an outdoor traversing wall.
Technology is at the forefront, with the introduction of 'Game Breaker' enabling students to record, playback and analyse their performance. 'Fitlinks' allows students to measure and monitor their fitness programmes online, including via smartphone technology.
The sports centre allows the school to extend its sports offering, with additional after-school activities. ACS Egham is also teaching a new IBDP course in Sports, Exercise and Health Science, further supporting student success through wider campus and curriculum integration.
In the Lower School our clubs programme, comprising soccer, judo, tennis, basketball, dance, track & field and other activities, places a strong emphasis on physical fitness and an active lifestyle. In the Middle School every student has the chance to play on a team, regardless of their ability or experience. While High School take advantage of our membership in the International School Sports Association, playing Varsity tournaments in Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis, and Golf across Europe.
These overseas trips double as great cultural experiences, giving our students the opportunity to meet and forge friendships with fellow athletes from other European schools. We also play other international schools in the London area, and participate in local tournaments.
If your child joins ACS Egham, we hope that he or she will become an integral part of the school's sporting life, not only gaining valuable athletic experience, but also building strong friendships along the way.
