Games & P.E



Pupils are required to take physical exercise throughout their time at Bramdean.

Boys in the main school play rugby, football, cricket, tennis and athletics.  Girls in the main school play hockey,  tennis, netball, rounders and athletics. Many of the girls also enjoy playing cricket and football.

Sports are organised both on a school and a house basis. This offers the opportunity for team play at all levels and encouragement to the less athletic, whilst enabling high standards to be achieved.



Bramdean has its own games field opposite the main school building, it has a comprehensive multi-gym facility and a covered uni-turf games area which is floodlit for evening activities including badminton, table tennis, basketball and five-a-side football.

Pupils up to Year 6 participate in swimming lessons. 

 The school offers excellent Professional coaching for all codes of sport.

Keith Brown, former Vice-Captain Middlesex County Cricket Club and English Cricket Board level 3 coach has also coached three current England cricketers, professionally contracted Somerset players, a Surrey player and the current England Women's Captain.

Autumn Sharp has competed and held National titles in both Gymnastics and Trampoline and currently coaches at the Exeter Trampoline Academy.
