It is well documented that children benefit enormously from participating in daily physical activity. It promotes good health in both body and mind.
Our aim is to encourage and develop a sense of well-being and enjoyment, in children of all abilities, in both individual activities and team games During KS1, children build on their natural enthusiasm for movement, using it to explore and learn about their world. They start to play and work with other children in pairs and small groups. By watching, listening and experimenting with movement and ideas, they develop their skills and their coordination and enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a variety of situations.
We offer a range of sporting activities including netball, rugby, football, rounders, cricket, athletics, cross-country running, gymnastics and dance. From J1 onwards children also have weekly swimming lessons.
Many older children have the opportunity to represent the school in a range of tournaments, such as the ISA rugby and football tournaments, regional cross-country events and the ISA athletics and cross-country championships.
