Team sport is an important feature of school life here at Cumnor House. Rounders is a major sport for girls in the Summer Term.
We aim to provide the children with every opportunity to develop their skills, reach their full potential, and enjoy their participation in the sport.
Girls follow a progressive balanced programme of training and competition throughout their time in the Prep school. This programme respects the girls’ natural stages of physical, mental and emotional development, and its key aim is to increase the likelihood that players of all abilities will remain active throughout their lifetimes.
Three afternoons a week are set aside for the development of core rounders skills, tactical knowledge and games awareness, alongside promoting positive attitudes which value respect, commitment, determination and teamwork. We have an extensive fixture list and aim to play at the highest level, fielding as many teams as possible and providing every girl with the opportunity to compete and represent the School regardless of their level of ability.
The juniors play a modified 5 v 5 version of the game, enabling them to develop their individual skills, understand the importance of teamwork thus having lots of fun.
With an excellent staff-to-pupil ratio, children are provided with the perfect opportunity to flourish and fulfil their true potential.
