MIS All For Sport Ethos

MIS is proud of our ‘All For Sport Ethos’ which aims to provide each and every child a chance to participate in sporting opportunities throughout their schooling careers.

Our superbly qualified teachers, paired together with our excellent sporting facilities, means that each child develops a love for sport whilst at MIS

Research shows that participation in sports can increase academic achievement in children and adolescents*. It is with this and a caring and inclusive community in mind, that MIS practices inclusivity with our team sports activity throughout the school from Early Years, Primary and Secondary.

Joining a sports team is a great way to make new friends, travel the region and have lots of fun. Students also learn about the importance of teamwork, discipline, how to face a new challenge and learning about themselves as individuals and leaders.

The various MIS sports programmes are aimed to develop personal wellness and physical fitness. Regular physical activity in childhood and adolescence improves strength and endurance; helps build healthy bones and muscles; helps control weight; reduces anxiety and stress; and increases self-esteem, mood, and concentration.

The Roman poet Juvenal coined the famous phrase when he wrote ‘Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano’ — You should pray for a healthy mind in a healthy body — around the end of the first century AD.

Individual and competitive sports are part of what makes the MIS community so supportive, happy and loyal.
