Netball at Cranbrook School

Sport

Sport is an integral part of life at Cranbrook and we have a hard-won reputation for producing well-trained and competitive youngsters across all age groups in a wide variety of sports.

Our on-site facilities include an outdoor heated swimming-pool, squash courts, 50 acres of playing fields, all-weather Astro-turf centre, and a superb sports-hall equipped with weights gym, cardio suite and dance-studio.  The sports that we offer are determined by the facilities at Cranbrook as well as the effort and goodwill of our dedicated PE, Games and teaching staff as well as volunteer parents.

The main sports at Cranbrook are rugby, hockey (boys and girls), cricket, rounders, netball, basketball, swimming, athletics and tennis. The majority of students participate in our busy sports programme during the week and most Saturdays with fixtures against top grammar and independent schools. Senior teams are run at 1st/2nd and 3rd levels while each year group has A and B teams and on occasions C and D. Most of the teams enter county and national cup competitions and are usually very successful. Inter-House sports competitions are also an inherent part of school life with mixed years working together to develop and enjoy additional team experiences. Finally, sports tours are a regular feature of the extra-curricular programme at Cranbrook. In past years hockey and rugby tours have headed off to places such as South Africa, Brunei, Argentina, Uruguay, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.

We know that most parents want to keep abreast of fixture arrangements and all the latest news. Fixtures are loaded onto our calendar before the start of each term.  Final arrangements, such as team selection, drop off times and any changes to the calendar are always communicated to students via the school noticeboard and assemblies the week prior to the match. Parents are also able to check all of these details by clicking on the link below.  All fixtures are updated live and therefore any changes to matches are available immediately.

The following link Fixtures, Results & Match Directions will take you to more detail about the matches, opponents, location when playing at home and of course travel directions for away fixtures.
