The sports teachers always believed in me and it's because of them that I began the England pathway"
Sophie Allan, England lacrosse player
Putney has a sport for all approach. We want all our girls to get involved and enjoy sport for fun, health and recreation, regardless of ability.
At the same time, we support and nurture elite performers who compete at county, national and international level.
Squads enjoy full fixtures and a large number of teams run for the most popular sports, such as Netball, to allow as many girls as possible to play competitively. Our Lacrosse players are often selected for Surrey, regional and national squads. Putney girls regularly represent London and England in Athletics and Cross Country. Rowing is hugely popular and we have our own boathouse on Putney Embankment, as well as the use of the local authority facility at Barn Elms.
More than 100 girls perform in our annual Dance show. There’s no audition, just an opportunity for everyone to get involved. From Acrobatics, Badminton and Cricket to Volleyball, Yoga and Zumba, there is a vast range on offer, to enable every girl to enjoy sport, whatever her interests.
As well as facilities on site, we use the extensive grounds at Wimbledon Rugby Club, the Dover House Road sports ground, Barn Elms and Wimbledon Athletics Track, a short distance away.
Our Elite Sportswomen programme
has been designed to support girls in managing their workload alongside the daily demands of their training schedules. Girls benefit from a designated mentor tracking their progress, with half termly workshops on sports related issues such as nutrition, injury and sports psychology.
