Sport is an important part of school life. The extensive grounds, sports hall and indoor swimming pool provide us with excellent facilities and all pupils are encouraged to join in with a wide variety of sports.PE and Games are taught as separate lessons from Reception to Year 6 and all pupils also have a weekly swimming lesson throughout the academic year.
In PE lessons pupils learn about the importance of being active and healthy through sports such as cross country running, gymnastics, trampolining and athletics.
In Games lessons pupils learn about the concepts of attack and defence as well as the values of teamwork and communication. From Year 2 onwards pupils are given the opportunity to take part in competitive fixtures and therefore develop a sense of tactical awareness. The sports covered in Games lessons include hockey, football, netball, rugby, tennis and cricket.
Pupils can also pursue a range of sports through the extra-curricular programme, some of the options available include pistol shooting, fencing, running, swimming, ballet and tennis coaching.
