  • Football - Boys Varsity

    2018 - 2019

    Football has had a long-standing and rich tradition here at The Gunnery, as students at our school have been playing this great sport since the mid-1850’s when Mr. Gunn – the founder of The Gunnery – was running the school and organizing games throughout the fall and winter seasons. Mr. Gunn believed that athletics played a significant role in a student’s personal development. He felt, as I do that physical fitness, leadership, character, and integrity are the essential attributes towards which all Gunnery student-athletes should aspire.

    Today, The Gunnery does an outstanding job preparing its student-athletes for success beyond the Gunnery experience. They graduate from here possessing the necessary skills to succeed both academically and athletically at colleges and universities at every level. 

    In early October 2015, The Gunnery and Millbrook School announced plans to start an eight-player football initiative among New England preparatory schools. The goal of the initiative is to provide a viable, long-term alternative to the game in its traditional form. Since the initial announcement, Pomfret School and Forman School have agreed to participate.  Play will begin in 2016.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
