Athletics

With Wimbledon Athletics Track just around the corner, athletics is a popular choice for Putney students.

From fun on the track at Sports Day, to competing regionally and nationally, track and field is loved by students at every level.

 

On your marks. Set. Go.

Cricket

It may be one of the newer additions to the sports curriculum, but cricket’s popularity amongst students has grown year on year. With multiple hard and soft ball teams, and the installation of indoor cricket nets allowing for year-round training, Putney students are already playing at a high level and are being selected for county clubs.

 

Hitting for Six? We think so.

Cross Country

Putney has extremely successful cross country teams that compete in a range of national competitions throughout the Winter months.

 

Blink and you’ll miss them.

Football

Football is a favoured sport at Putney, particularly with Year 7-9 students. With multiple teams putting in strong performances against our regional competitors, our students are moving the goalposts when it comes to women’s sport…

 

The off-side rule? That’s just the beginning!

Gymnastics

Putney has seen a host of successful gymnasts through the years, from British champions to world class tumblers.

Our elite gymnastics squads compete in Surrey, British Schools and at national competitions.

This year, our U13s were crowned National Champions, our U19 team taking 3rd place.

 

Vaulting to victory – let’s go!

Lacrosse

Lacrosse is a Putney favourite, with students playing for English and Scottish national teams.

Led by Miss Faram, England Lacrosse Captain, LAX at Putney is flourishing, and this year our U15 team were crowned National Runners Up, our U19s taking the top spot, as National Champions.

 

Live, love, LAX.

Netball

Over 250 students play netball and are involved in 200 matches each season.
With seven teams across Year 7, everyone is involved in training, fixtures and tournaments, developing valuable netball and all round sporting skills.

This year our netballers have certainly made their mark on the national stage:

U12 School Sport Magazine National Champions

U12 Sisters n Sport National Champions

U13 School Sport Magazine National Champions

U13 Independent Schools National Champions

U14 National Schools Champions

U16 National Schools 3rd Place

 

World domination? Almost!

Rowing

Rowing is hugely popular and our boathouse on Putney Embankment benefits from one of the most prestigious locations on the River Thames.

We have multiple squads formed from Year 8-13 students. There are social and performance tiers in each age group and a professional team of coaches, including a high-performance coach.

Putney rowers have gone on to row for GB, in the Oxford and Cambridge boat race and ‘across the pond’ at Princeton University, USA.

 

Future Olympians, start here.

Table Tennis

A recent addition to our student’s sporting repertoire, table tennis is fast becoming a popular choice for students across the Senior School. With one Year 7 student playing for England and a National 2nd Place already under our belt, the future looks bright for Putney players…

 

But whatever you do, just don’t call it ping pong!

Tennis

Playing tennis is a social and fun activity. With many students playing tennis to a competitive level, Putney participates in national and regional competitions. Putney students are often selected to be Wimbledon ball girls and have previously been National LTA Champions.

 

Game. Set. Match.

There's a great variety of sports at Putney. You can be a complete beginner or a very advanced player.
