Sports facilities

The Swanage School sports hall is a full-size indoor hall marked out for badminton (four courts), 5/6-a-side football / informal hockey, netball, basketball (match hoops plus practice hoops on the side walls) and volleyball. A height-adjustable net can span the full length of the hall to enable larger numbers to practice short tennis, badminton or volleyball.

Outside are the two pitches and the outdoor all-weather pitch, which is an artificial turf pitch with rebound fences and inset goal areas. It is designed for 5/6-a-side football and informal hockey but can accommodate a wide range of other sports and activities.

We also make regular use of local cricket facilities and local swimming pools while in the summer students are able to participate in water sports such as rowing and sailing as part of our extensive extra-curricular programme.
