Top independent sports schools of 2017

 

We have revealed the country’s best state sports schools of 2017 – now it’s the turn of Britain’s best independent schools.

 

Hundreds of schools turn in a series of remarkable results after months of hard work – but who are the country’s best of the best.

 

The list reflects competitive achievement in a range of sports throughout 2017 and honours those schools that take competition especially seriously.

 

So congratulations to Millfield School – winners for the fifth successive year - who reached the final stages of ten different sports and won national titles at football, tennis, swimming and biathlon.

 

Well done too to Whitgift School in Surrey, second for the fifth successive year, who won four national titles at rugby union, hockey, table tennis and biathlon and reached the final stages of three more.

 

Compliments also to Guildford High School - in third place again - one of four all-girls schools in the top 30, who reached the later stages of national netball, athletics, swimming, lacrosse and cross-country competitions.

 

Manchester Grammar School made it into the top ten for the first time in fifth place as did Cumbria’s Sedbergh School in seventh.

 

And hats off to the other 27 teams who have made it into the top 30 of our fifth annual chart – not to mention the hundreds of other schools that haven’t made the list this year but are still providing excellent competitive opportunities for their pupils.

 

Based on 20 different sports and more than 120 different national competitions, more weighting is given to success in a range of sports rather than single sports as well as competitions with more teams competing.

 

Keep watching online at www.schoolsportmag.co.uk for our extended top 100 list which will be uploaded in due course.
