I had my friend Henry asking me about sports in my children’s school. Henry is about to choose a school for his children but is not too overwhelmed from what he saw when it comes to team sports in those schools he researched.
Guess what! I had the same problem back several years ago when I wanted a great school for my children that also has a priority on sports such as soccer or cricket. For our family, sports is really important!
What I saw is that most public schools here in the UK are severely lacking when it comes to sports. And this is exactly why we prefer private, independent schools!
In my research I found that most private schools in the UK have normally a much better selection on sports; most of them even have teams and a good number of the schools have excellent sports facilities as well. Today this is something rather rare if you look at most of our public schools.
So what I told Henry was that he shouldn’t even bother with public school, it’s really a waste of time if sports play a big role in your family. I told him about Kingshottschool, the school we choose for our children here in Herts. So if you are in Hertfordshire and want to know about Hertfordshire private schools I can highly recommend it to you!
