Children at Hanford enjoy participating in formal games every afternoon. During the winter terms, sports include netball, hockey, pop lacrosse and cross country running.

During the summer we teach tennis, swimming, rounders, cricket and athletics. Gymnastics is taught throughout the year.

We strive to develop team spirit and House competitions are staged in all sports giving every child the opportunity to represent a team whilst engendering camaraderie and mutual support. School matches are played on Wednesdays and at weekends and high standards are achieved by all the school teams.

Facilities at Hanford include netball and tennis courts, a well equipped gymnasium and an outdoor heated swimming pool, open from April until the autumn half-term. These are set within the extensive grass lawns which provide Hanford with its blend of informality and rural charm.

Tennis coaching, ballet and tap dancing lessons are available throughout the year during games afternoons as optional extras.
