At ES Senior School, PE and Games form an integral part of the school week. Both encourage strong physical and mental health, resilience, fair play and teamwork. The purpose of our sporting ethos at Eaton Square is to instil these benefits for life.

Our main sports grounds in Acton provide a safe and spacious environment for students to play all traditional team sports. We also use facilities on our doorstep in Green Park and Hyde Park, with a swimming pool close by.
