About Alleyn Court Prepatory

Alleyn Court has a reputation for outstanding achievement and high levels of participation in sport.  We are fortunate to have excellent facilities (including a sports hall and extensive playing fields) that allow a large range of sports to be played both during timetabled and extra curricular time. 

We follow a traditional prep school programme: Physical Education lessons take place in the mornings and games and fixtures generally taking place in the afternoons. Each pupil from year 2 - 6 has a double Physical Education lesson (70 minutes) and two games afternoons (1 hour 20 minutes each) per week, giving a total of 3 hours 50 minutes curriculum time. In addition to this there is an extensive programme of fixtures, clubs and activities, which all pupils are encouraged and welcome to take part in.  

There is a wide range of sporting fixtures arranged throughout the year. We compete against both independent schools and locally through our active involvement in the Southend Primary Schools Sports Partnership. Our year 6 basketball and netball teams also compete against the local secondary schools.  

However, perhaps the most hotly contested fixtures are the house competitions, in which every pupil takes part.  Each term house tournaments are staged:

  • In the Autumn Term:  Basketball, Football and Netball

  • In the Spring Term:    Tag Rugby, Cross - country and Hockey

  • In the Summer Term: Cricket, Kwik Cricket, Rounders and Athletics

Both school and house spirit is high amongst all members of the community at Alleyn Court. This is enhanced by the cheer-leading team, which attends all home basketball fixtures. All children are enthusiastic about their sport, which makes a strong contribution to the happy, active atmosphere at school.

Statement: The Southend Primary Schools Sports Association are committed to the continual safeguarding of our children.
