For everyday training, lessons and clubs, students can make use of our netball court, astro pitch, games field, large sports hall and fitness suite located at Hill Lane. For competitive matches, Saturday sport and larger events, we extensively use our Wellington Sports Grounds.
Wellington Sports Ground
Situated in Stoneham Lane, just ten minutes from the main school site, the Wellington Sports Ground was purchased in 2004 from the University of Southampton. It contains thirty-three acres of grounds, four netball courts, and water-based Astro pitch. A large pavilion with seventeen changing rooms, a kitchen and catering facilities for over one hundred students is also available.
The Sports Hall is located to the east of the school site. It is used for a variety of sports and lessons throughout the year.
A renovation of the Fitness Suite was completed in 2023. Every student at King Edward VI School can develop physically by using our fitness suite. All students are inducted on how to use age-appropriate movements and equipment in the facility and this gives them the opportunity to attend the fitness suite at lunch times and after school. Students are educated on how to develop their own training programmes, as well as having access to specialist 1:1 advice from the Head of Strength and Conditioning. There are also weekly fitness classes run in the suite that aim to challenge students to ensure they reach their physical conditions.
