Physical Education

We are very proud of our Physical Education and Games Department. We offer significant sporting opportunities for all children during the school day and after hours. The children are offered Physical Education (PE) through different activities throughout the school week. Children in Upper School participate in two PE lessons and a Games lesson each week. Lower School children are taught the foundations of movement, balance and co-ordination through sports skills. These include passing and receiving, dance, athletics, and striking and fielding. These skills are later developed into full team sports including football, netball, rounders’, tennis, dodgeball, cricket, tag rugby and handball. Activities change regularly so the children get the opportunity to experience a broad range of different physical activities.

Children also compete in fixtures most weeks of the year and take part in our annual Sports Day and Swimming Gala, as well as participating in Independent Schools Association’s Sports fixtures.

From five years old onwards children attend weekly swimming lessons in nearby pool facilities. We offer a several sports clubs including gymnastics, football, cricket, athletics, dance, karate, yoga and ballet.
