- School sport is part of every boy’s commitment. This entails training and playing in organised fixtures. There are boys who are excused on medical grounds, and in these situations every endeavour is made to involve them in a non-playing capacity with a team. Any requests for exemption must be submitted via the Head of House to the Deputy headmaster for approval.
- A boy competing with an outside body is required to honour School training and match commitments as a matter of absolute priority.
- Boys are expected to attend all sport training sessions and matches. If an absence is absolutely necessary a note from parents is required. If the absence is for reasons other than sickness the boy should deliver the note personally to the coach before the session.
- Routine dental, medical and other appointments should be made at times that do not conflict with sporting commitments.
