Sport at Ditcham follows our ethos ‘Where every child is known and valued’ and aims to be as inclusive as possible. Participation and competition run hand in hand as the school seeks to promote opportunities for all of our children.
Matches span the age ranges range from Under 8 all the way through to Under 16. These run, where possible, on their Games Day. Therefore a program of fixtures run through Monday to Friday afternoons and evenings. The occasional weekend fixture does occur but usually under special circumstances.
We offer traditional team sports such as Football, Netball, Rugby and Hockey. However we also participate in a diverse range of other sports such as Basketball and Volleyball. In the Summer term, we move onto Cricket and Rounders as the staples for team sport. There are various league programs set up for all these sports as well as a host of tournaments both regional and national
As well as team sports the school does cater for the individual with a plethora of sports on site and in competition.
We have a very successful Athletics program that leads to area, county and national championships. We also compete well in Tennis performing well in the Aegon Leagues.
The school also has Table Tennis and Badminton fixtures, competes in x- country events, and enters the annual Butser Hill Challenge as well as partaking in Triathlons around the area.
Ditcham also offer other opportunities such as Fitness, Fencing and Judo. The juniors swim at the TARO Leisure Centre as part of their curriculum.
Sport at Ditcham is fun but with the focus on competition when necessary, we believe we provide a positive environment for all pupils whether sporty or not and that everyone finds a niche for themselves.
