Wellingborough Preparatory School seeks to develop an enjoyment of sport as well as a life long desire to learn and improve in the activities they are participating in. Wellingborough Prep School hopes to provide the best possible provision for all pupils; to that end, we strive to offer pupils every opportunity to enjoy sport and experience success. Those who have the desire to excel are provided with every opportunity to achieve their goals whereas, at the same time, all pupils benefit from good coaching and positive sporting experiences.

Fixtures are played during the week, usually on a Wednesday, and occasionally on Saturdays.
The Preparatory School benefits from having academic staff that are also well experienced and trained to coach specific sports. The PE and Games department within the Preparatory and Senior School are extremely well qualified and are supported by a number of part-time coaches. The staff include ex professional and semi-professional sports people as well as experienced staff who possess level 2 and above coaching awards and/or post graduate qualifications in sport specific subjects such as sports coaching and sports science.
We provide an extensive fixture list for girls and boys from U9 to U13, often fielding enough teams for all pupils to play on a particular day.
