At RGS Prep, respect is at the core of our sports philosophy. Our specialist sports staff aim to maximise participation and support individual ambitions. We strive to encourage a lifelong love for sport and a genuine understanding of the importance of staying active for a happy and healthy life.

In competition, while the boys are encouraged to do their best and play well, there’s an expectation that boys are humble, gracious honest, self-disciplined and respectful.
