Girls in the 5th and 6th Form train together and exceptional girl players are invited to train with the boys Top Squad and two girls have represented the Boys 1st V1.  The Third and Fourth Form are in two separate squads divided by ability (the boys and girls train together).  All squads receive coaching appropriate to the level of their play.

The School runs 1st VI, 2nd VI, 3rd VI, U15A, U15B, and U15C teams in the Summer Term for boys and 1st VI, 2nd VI U15A and U15B teams for girls.   Matches are played against Rugby, Malvern, KES Birmingham, Cheltenham College, Repton, Denstone College, Bromsgrove, and Ellesmere, as well as internal fixtures and OS fixtures.  There are Senior and Junior House competitions for tennis.
