Sport



Sport is a strength at Merchant Taylors’. With expert coaching and excellent facilities, boys thrive on the opportunities to compete and develop their talents in team and individual sports. We enjoy a national reputation for rugby and hockey and our rowing goes from strength to strength.

Summer sports include cricket, athletics and tennis. Football is offered in the Spring Term with several fixtures against strong opposition. Being a good sportsman, in every sense, is the philosophy that underpins our games. Not all boys are naturally good at sport but we cater for everyone. We offer a wide range of opportunities including hiking, climbing and orienteering which ensures that all boys can take part and feel a sense of achievement.
