Boarding school isn’t just about the academics. Athletics and physical activity are integral parts of student life at Besant Hill School. We strive to provide meaningful athletic activities that will instill a passion for lifelong health and wellness. Each season, all students are required to enroll in a fitness or team sport. A single season of a team sport is required between a student’s freshman and sophomore year, and again between a student’s junior and senior year.

Team Sports

Our competitive team sports are built on value-based coaching with an emphasis in participation, commitment, sportsmanship, and striving to do one’s best.

Success for our student-athletes and coaches will never be defined by wins or losses, but by how hard a student works to attain both personal and team best. Our no-cut policy allows room for students of all athletic levels to have the experience of being part of a team. Following the school’s motto, Aun Aprendo “I am still learning,” mistakes are not only expected, but considered a requirement for growth.
