Sports at Mount Anville

Sport and physical activity is an integral component of life at Mount Anville Montessori Junior School, and all pupils are encouraged to develop their talents and participate to the full.

Inclusion, participation and enjoyment are the underlying principles of the school’s “sport for all” ethos, which is designed to offer all pupils a richness of opportunity and the chance to discover new skills. A varied range of physical activities contributes to the rounded education pupils receive at Mount Anville.

Above all, the school’s PE and sports curriculum allows pupils to learn and have fun in an environment that provides open and fair opportunity for all.

Mount Anville Montessori Junior School offers excellent on-site sporting facilities and a dedicated team of specialist PE and Sport teachers who provide expert coaching in a wide variety of team and individual sports. The greatest possible opportunity is provided for all our girls to represent the school in competitive fixtures.

Many pupils achieve county, national or international representative honours and the school is rightly proud of its numerous successes in county, regional and national competitions in both team and individual sports.

Competitive sport

We have a sport for all ethos here at Mount Anville but we also recognise the benefits that competitive sport can bring to our school. Therefore, prior to graduating from 6th class every girl will have had the opportunity to represent the school in a competitive match environment. We are very proud of our sporting achievements and we have won
several cups, trophies and medals in a wide variety of sports such as athletics, basketball, cross country, GAA, golf, hockey, spike ball, swimming and tennis.
