Sport

Sport and games are a key feature across the whole school, right from the youngest children in our pre-school through to the oldest GCSE students. We recognise that sport is a vehicle for whole school improvement and is a healthy ingredient to the school week.

Every class from Infants upwards has an indoor PE lesson and an outdoor Games session each week, where the students have the opportunity to learn different physical skills as they grow. They take part in a wide range of seasonal activities, such as football, futsal hockey and dodgeball in the autumn term; netball, handball and fitness skills in the spring; and in the summer the focus is usually athletics and rounders. Extracurricular sports clubs also run within lunchtimes and after school.

As well as teaching our students the technical skills of each sport, we also place an emphasis on social skills such as teamwork, fair play, respect and good sportsmanship. Students from year 3 upwards have the opportunity to play competitive sport against other schools and to participate in the annual Christian Schools sports day as well as our own in house school sports day.
