"Sport is an integral aspect of life at the Stamford Endowed Schools. Through sport we aim to give your child a healthy attitude to physical activity throughout his or her school career and, more importantly, for life."

Mark Nasey
Director of Sports

We enjoy an enviable sporting tradition. 

Through unrivalled facilities and excellent teaching and coaching, we can offer you numerous opportunities to compete and participate in an array of activities.

From taught curriculum subjects, to an extensive list of co-curricular activities, there is something for everyone at Stamford.

If you are an aspiring athlete, we also offer performance or podium sports, which focus on high achievement and success in regional and national arenas or at elite level competitions.

Breadth of Offering

We offer over 17 sports; from table tennis to touch rugby, basketball to badminton, fencing to football and much more.

Representing your school is the norm here. Our culture nurtures the drive and spirit to turn up, put on your school colours, and represent in your chosen sport, at whatever level.


The right investment in core areas of the school has helped us develop a considerable portfolio of facilities that benefit our students. 

We are one of the top sporting schools in the Midlands, which is supported by our investment in the facilities, quality teaching and coaching we can offer. 

Our 60 acre site is nestled in the heart of the Georgian town of Stamford, Lincolnshire.

Stamfordian Spirit is a phrase you will hear parents, students, teachers and alumni use to capture the very essence of sport at Stamford.
Our Philosophy of Sport

Our philosophy is quite simply sport for all, because sport will expose you to the benefits of a lifelong affiliation to physicality.

Every students sporting journey at Stamford is characterised by our philosophy and key values. We expect these values to be apparent in all sport moments, from PE and Games lessons, to training, fixtures and recreational moments.

Stamfordian Sport Values: 

- Enjoyment through growth, challenge and reward.

- Resilience by living moments of success and failure.

- Competition characterised by co-operation and independence.

- Belonging to Stamford in participation and representation.

- Physicality based on knowledge of the benefits of physical activity.

Why do these values matter? 

When you feels a sense of belonging and a sense of pride, students build emotional resilience. Building resilience both physically and emotionally enables us to be able to deal with challenges and difficulties on the sports field, in the class room and in life.

Learning to work as part of a team helps our Stamfordians to enhance their social skills, such as patience, empathy, communication, respect for others, compromise and tolerance.

Together this builds rounded and grounded individuals, who are independent thinkers, fizzing with Stamfordian spirit.

At Stamford we recognise the importance of connections.

Our long-established relationships with pathway programmes and partnerships beyond school life help bolster our offering at Stamford School. The partnerships and pathways benefit students in so many ways.
