In the Collège de Normandie, modelled on Harrow school in England, physical education and games were compulsory. Pupils played football, real tennis and lacrosse, and did gymnastics and fencing. Pupils had access to outstanding sports facilities: a 2,400 m3 outdoor pool, five football pitches, a stadium, seven tennis courts, a basketball court and a fencing court. As at Harrow, crafts such as woodwork were also on the timetable.
