IAPS Sport Sponsorship

The Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS) is a schools’ association with 700 of the world’s leading prep schools in membership, both in the UK and internationally. As a service provider for our member schools, we provide support and guidance to Headteachers, professional training for staff and opportunities for children to take part in sport and art competitions. Our schools provide education for over 160,000 pupils in the UK and 26,000 children internationally.

The annual sport programme offers a range of team and individual events for children to compete in a fun, safe and competitive environment. During the 2018-2019 academic year, 160 events were organised, in 23 sports, with 23,000 children participating. Each event is supported by a significant number of spectators which makes for a fabulous atmosphere. For example, the national swimming finals at the London Aquatics Centre in June 2019 had 1500 competitors qualify from over 300 member schools. The finals were sponsored by SFS Group and supported by 3,000 spectators. The national netball finals in March 2019 saw 64 teams qualify and compete over two days, all cheered on by around 1,000 spectators.
