Sports

Children have PE and sports opportunities every day.

The PE and Games programme teaches the children fitness and skills in many aspects of sport. The aim is to give them at least a taste of as many sports activities as possible, to prepare them for whatever they might take up at senior school.

In a week most children will have two lessons of PE, one of Games, one of Gymnastics and one of Swimming (in a heated indoor pool) with our own specialist teachers.

Teams compete against other schools in eight sports. They are taught to be sporting, fair and gracious, whether they win or lose. Football, netball, cricket, tag-rugby and rounders are the main team games played.

The school regularly enters teams in cross-country, chess, swimming and gymnastics competitions and has had a great deal of success. (see Successes)

Other sports enjoyed by the children at school include athletics, badminton, hockey, skiing and tennis.

The school currently has a particular strength in schools’ gymnastics and has won many competitions.
