House Sport

House Sports


It’s hard to put into words the passion and commitment shown by pupils when they are wearing their house swipes! 

House sport has a great sense of camaraderie, competitiveness, and inclusiveness.

Many of the sports played at Marlborough have house competitions for the various year groups, including hockey, rugby, netball, tennis, cricket, football, fives, squash, basketball, shooting, swimming and water polo.

Traditionally the year of house sport is started with the house cross-country and Shell steeplechase, and is rounded off at the end of the Summer Term by sports day, showcasing the athleticism of the pupils.

Points are accumulated across the year and together with colours awards, provide an overall house sport champion.
