Sport is at the heart of school life providing every student with the opportunity to fulfil their dreams and aspirations in the embodiment of the school’s motto ‘Love as Brethren’.
Extensive and well maintained grounds enable a wide variety of sports to be played with over fifty extra-curricular clubs available to all students each week. The curriculum provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills, understanding and interest in a whole host of sporting experiences.
The department consists of seven highly qualified and enthusiastic physical education teachers ably supported by a number of specialist sports coaches. This wealth of experience allows students to have the opportunities to compete at house, district, county, regional, national and even international level.
Our inclusive extra-curricular programme is also an outstanding venue for older students to experience leadership opportunities and we have a legacy of exceptional sports captains who assist the department with the mentoring of younger pupils providing sporting role models.
The department is committed to broadening the sporting horizons of our young people and we enjoy the privileges of taking students on a variety of sporting tours both at home and abroad. These memorable experiences give our students exposure to sport in a new environment as well as a cultural immersion.
As one of the top state schools for sport in the country, at the heart of our philosophy is the desire to provide each of our students with the opportunity to access high quality physical education in our warm and friendly community. We firmly believe that learning extends beyond the classroom and everyone is encouraged to participate to develop their skills and also to understand the importance of an active healthy lifestyle and the value of working as part of a team.
All students participate in 2 hours a week of Physical Education where they undertake a wide variety of sports using National Curriculum guidelines, and also compete in a series of inter-house competitions in a variety of sports across the year.
