At Buckingham Preparatory School we aim to provide expertise for highly talented and enthusiastic games players, as well as for those who are less naturally at home on the games field but whom, nonetheless, will benefit from taking exercise and developing skills.

We play a large number of sports at Buckingham Prep School. We have internal Inter-House competitions and we also play against local schools in regular fixtures. There are also opportunities for competitive matches and fixtures in local and regional competitions.

School Colours are an important part of recognising a boy’s effort and achievement in a particular sport. These will be awarded at the end of the relevant sporting term to those who have excelled and progressed in a given sport. Each term this provides students with the opportunity to achieve School Colours. All major sports are available to achieve School Colours.

The school offers a wide range of sports for afterschool clubs including football, rugby, cricket and judo.
