As well as our well-equipped school hall, we have a large school field marked out in the winter with a football pitch and an athletics track and rounders pitch in the summer. There is also a netball court on the playground. The time allocated to sport varies according to the weather, the time of year and the age of the child. Year 4 children have swimming lessons at Hitchin Pool for one term to enable them to become confident swimmers and achieve the National Curriculum standard and beyond. Year 5 take part in outdoor pursuits, off site with trained staff, as part of the PE curriculum with activities such as: climbing, abseiling, archery and kayaking.

As a whole school, we hold a traditional athletics Sports Day, when all the children compete in house teams for the school trophy. Each class takes part in a daily mile run to promote physical health and wellbeing on our newly installed daily mile track, an all-weather circuit around the school field.

The children at Ickleford School are encouraged to be fit and active. Even from an early age their skills develop and are able to take part in a range of inter-class, outer-school sporting events and festivals. Netball and football skills are practised during lesson times but there are also after school clubs which form school teams. The school teams regularly play in rallies and matches with other local schools. We also offer a broad timetable of extracurricular clubs such as: multi-skills, active wall, tennis, cross country and dance.
