For some children in the United Kingdom, and of course for their parents too, sports is an equally important part in regards to good education along with classes such as maths, chemistry or foreign languages.
And obviously, participating in sports regularly is also known to be very beneficial for your children’s health.
One issue in the UK is that public schools are not necessarily seeing the benefits of sporty activities. For those schools, an hour or two of sports per week seems to be enough; some schools don’t even have teams where you child could participate in sports such as soccer, cricket or basketball just to name a few.
Private schools are normally much better when sports is important for you and your children. Those schools are understanding the importance to participate in sporty activities and often have their entire school culture built around their sports teams. It is often form those private and independent schools where the most successful young adults will grow up, those who later-on may become successful leaders, not only in sports but in many other areas of life.
The Kingshottschool has a reputation as one of the best prep schools in Hertfordshire for sport. This is the school I recommend since I have my children there and they cannot be happier. If your children love sports and you look for Hertfordshire private schools you should definitely consider this excellent school.
