At Sauveterre there is a significant emphasis on sport and outdoor activity. Unlike at the pupils’ host schools, there is not one dominant sport in each term. Football and rugby are played in the Winter and Spring terms and these are accompanied by hockey, basketball, tennis, cross-country running, and ping pong to name a few. In the summer swimming, rounders and volleyball are also often played.
Each week pupils will also take part in the now legendary, La Course. This is a race around the Château drive. Various matches are arranged with local clubs and societies to satisfy the competitive characters and there are plenty of opportunities to watch some of France’s finest sportsmen and women in the area.
