The School’s sporting offer, partly delivered through The Acre, ensures that all pupils leave school with a positive experience of exercise and of one or more sports or activities which they will pursue into adulthood. Pupils working to achieve success at all levels of competition at School or with clubs are supported.
Pupils attend PE lessons through to the Sixth Form, and all pupils participate in a minimum of three sports afternoons per week. The study of Physical Education is offered at GCSE and A level.

The first indoor swimming pool was opened in November 1971, replacing an open air pool which had been built on the same site in 1935. In March 1985, then headmaster David McMurray proposed building a sports centre next to the swimming pool. The school’s first sports centre opened on Speech Day in July 1987. Following the opening of the new Oundle Sports Centre in 2020, this complex was renamed The Acre.
