St Paul’s School / Sport

Each team is organised and trained by a member of our teaching staff. We also employ outside coaches to run goalkeeper clinics.

Matches take place during the week, in games options and on Saturdays. Each team has two lunchtime training sessions during the week. Before the spring term, there are two to three days of pre-season training for senior, U16 and U15 players.

U14 matches are played in the second half of the spring term, giving 13-year-olds the chance to experience a sport that’s new to them. The opportunity to practise soccer skills is available throughout the term.

Such is the enthusiasm, we have run a number of tours in recent years, travelling to South Africa, Spain and Portugal. We also run short, pre-season tours in the UK.

The 1st, 2nd, U16A and U15A teams play in the Southern Lent Term League. The 1st XI won their league in 2015, going undefeated, and the U15As won theirs in 2013.

The 1st and 2nd XIs also regularly play in the London Independent Schools’ Cup, and the 1st XI won this in 2010.

  • Jasper Harlington (Year 13, Upper Eighth) is the first Pauline to represent the ISFA England U18 team (2013–14).
  • Richard Nartey (Year 11, Sixth form) played for Chelsea Youth (2014–15) and has been awarded a scholarship from Chelsea.
  • Jonny Walker holds our record for goals scored — 36 in two seasons (2010-11).
