Sport | Cargilfield : Scotland's First Prep School


We strive at Cargilfield to produce a wide and varied sports programme for all children.

Expertly-coached daily Games sessions in all the major sports (hockey, netball, and rounders for the girls and hockey, cricket and rugby for the boys) are run throughout the year, with weekly matches for children in theUpperSchoolalso on offer.  We also offer tennis, athletics, gymnastics, badminton, golf, squash, sailing, shooting, fencing, table tennis and football to name a few, and these are all hugely popular throughout the school, largely due to the dedication of the coaches and the commitment of the children to excel.

We boast great facilities, including a large multi-sports (including cricket nets) Games Hall with balcony, astro turf pitch, 3 tennis courts, grass football pitch, large grass games fields and mini astro for the younger children.

All children from P1 through to Form 6 receive weekly PE lessons, and children in the Pre Prep also have swimming as part of their curriculum.

We participate regularly in IAPS tournaments all over theUKand encourage our pupils to play with determination and drive.  We run a yearly ski trip toEuropewhich is open to all children from P3 upwards.

Our children regularly gain Sports Scholarships to Senior Schools up and down the country, and many of them also gain district and even national honours in their chosen sport.

Our aim is to promote health and well being, and ensure that each and every child fulfils his or her potential through enjoyment and hard work.
