Sport at Latymer Upper has always played a major part in both the curricular and extra-curricular life of our pupils. A wide range of exciting activities are on offer to all boys and girls, from enthusiastic beginners to regular Club members, with the emphasis on fun and inclusion as well as the serious business of competition.
The School has a long tradition of excellence in the sporting field and nowhere is this shown to such advantage as the pinnacle of all sporting competitions - the Olympics. Latymerians have represented their country on numerous occasions, beginning with an alumnus from the class of 1910, through to London 2012.
