The school has a comprehensive PE programme whereby children participate in a wide range of activities in which enjoyment and healthy competition is encouraged.
Children are taught games often by specialist teachers/coaches in order that they acquire and develop a variety of skills which are then utilised further in team game situations, eg, football, rugby, netball, hockey, cricket, basketball and rounders. Our athletics scheme of work provides the opportunity to further individual potential and improve previous performances. Activities take place either on the school playground or on the field, at Mill Meadow, a short walk from the school.
“The school performs exceptionally well in sport and school teams are highly successful both at a local and, in some cases, at a national level.”
During P.E lessons children experience gymnastics, dance and ball skills, which take place either in the school hall or playground. There are further opportunities for pupils to increase their sporting skills and interest by taking part in the expansive programme of extra curricular activities.
Our boys' and mixed gym teams have been National champions in the past and our table tennis teams have also been competing at a high level at regional and national competitions.
