New Hanover Prep offers children the opportunity to explore various sporting codes and activities.

The importance of physical activity as part of every child’s development is emphasized in the wide-ranging activities on offer. While mass participation is central to the sports offered, talented athletes are exposed to higher levels of competition through district and regional participation and representation. NHP is known for ‘punching above our weight’ on the sports field, and although we play hard and are competitive on the sports field, sportsmanship and manners are of fundamental importance to our sport programme.

Professional sports coaching provides all children with the grounding and skills relevant to each code. The sports on offer at NHP are cricket, swimming, soccer, rugby, hockey, athletics, cross-country and tennis.
