Wycombe Abbey School Hangzhou not only focuses on pupils' academic performance, but also pays great attention to building their character and skills, their perseverance and open-mindedness, their leadership and team working skills, as well as many other aspects of their all-round development that can be developed effectively through sports. For this reason we encourage our pupils to participate in a range of sports at school.
International scientists have proved that children who play sport are not only healthier and stronger but also more likely to succeed academically. The world's leading universities all recognise the importance of sport. Therefore, a rich exercise curriculum is essential.
WASHZ takes sports courses very seriously offering opportunities to participate in a whole variety of different sports every day. We offer sports courses that few schools in China provide, including rugby, fencing, horse riding, golf, hockey and rowing.
WASHZ recruits first-class sports teachers and coaches, including some professional athletes and members of national teams, to help pupils develop their physical fitness and future life and career skills.
