Please can you ensure you son is prepared to participate in warm-weather PE. A cap, sunscreen and a bottle of water are key items for your son to have, especially during the double periods. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Games sessions during internal exam week
Year 7, 8 and 9 have Games timetabled for internal exam week. Please could they come prepared with PE kit and warm-weather items detailed above. The PE Department will be running a house softball tournament within those sessions. If the weather is poor we will provide alternative physical activity indoors.
Match Division is the name that Reading School gives its after co-curricular clubs that focus on preparing boys to represent the school in rugby, football, cricket and athletics. There is a level of commitment required from your son to join a Match Division. Firstly they must be available to make training and secondly they must commit to the published Saturday fixtures. Failure to attend training means they won’t be considered for selection. Failure to be available for Saturday fixtures means they will be withdrawn from the Match Division. Being unable to field our best teams on Saturday will result in a loss of reputation for the school and the withdrawal of fixtures by other schools, making it impossible to sustain the current level of provision of school sport we offer.
Please note that finish times for cricket fixtures are an estimate. Due to the nature of cricket the games might be much shorter (or occasionally longer). We do our best in trying to approximate finish/return times, but this can be a little more difficult with regards to cricket. Thank you for your patience in this matter.
