Exciting developments for sport facilities at Warwick Schools Foundation

Sport is an integral part of a Warwick Schools Foundation education. Enabling all our pupils to develop their sporting interests requires outstanding facilities. Our ambition is to ensure that we can offer unrivalled opportunities for those whose interest is recreational as well as our elite sportspeople.

Developments include refurbishment of 17 acres of the Kingsley Sports Fields in Leamington, as well as new cricket nets, additional Astroturf pitches, tennis and netball courts, and a new pavilion with changing faciltiies and associated support for sports services and hospitality at the Foundation's Warwick campus.

There are also plans to enable better access to facilities for all pupils in the Foundation. By developing each site in parallel, and taking into account the needs of all our pupils, we can create a suite of facilities
which benefit the whole Foundation community. With each site being just a short journey from each other, it will be possible to ‘mix and match’ usage, extending opportunities without compromising access.

"The schools’ Directors of Sport have worked together with the Foundation Bursar and architects from Lawson Ward Studio to maximise the sporting opportunities on site. These plans create maximum flexibility in delivering an ever-widening range of sporting activities and increase sporting opportunities
for all our pupils."
Richard Nicholson, Foundation Principal

“Extending the opportunities for sport on our own sites will undoubtedly have a very positive impact on our pupils. We want everyone to have as good a sporting start as possible as part of the holistic education we offer. The more opportunities we can offer for our pupils to find the sport which engages them most, the greater the likelihood that physical recreation will become a healthy part of their lives in the world beyond school.” James Barker, Head Master, Warwick School

“At Warwick Junior and Senior School, pupils have the privilege of enjoying a diverse range of sporting opportunities throughout the year. The passion for both competitive and recreational sports is as strong as ever, and for many pupils, school sport is a highlight of their school experience. Barriers that currently
exist related to facility access will be significantly reduced, ensuring more pupils will enjoy the benefits
of additional opportunities.”
 Tom Hancock, Director of Sport, Warwick School

“At the Junior School, we offer our boys every opportunity to pursue new interests and make the most of their potential. Sport is a key part of our provision encouraging excellence, but also an enjoyment of playing as a team and an appreciation of the importance of physical health. The improvement of our facilities will ensure that the younger boys in the school continue to compete, both locally and nationally, building a strong foundation for future success.” John Bond, Headmaster, Warwick Junior School

We are confident that these developments will see the Foundation being able to offer the most comprehensive sporting facilities locally, support all our pupils in their sporting pursuits, and enable enhanced opportunities for all, meeting the needs of our current and future generations of pupils.
