The Physical Education Department aims to create a positive learning environment, enabling both girls and boys to achieve success, enjoy a wide range of sports and activities, develop their physical skills and take personal responsibility for leading a healthy lifestyle.
All students are encouraged to achieve their best in sport, whether they become a county champion or succeed at something new for the first time.
A varied curriculum is offered at KS3 to introduce students to a broad spectrum of sporting experiences. In addition to the PE curriculum, students also have a games afternoon, where teams are developed and fixtures are played against local schools. Our sports teams have enjoyed considerable success in both regional and national competitions.
Additional activities are offered in Years 10 and above in order to give pupils the opportunity to discover new games and sports, with a view to introducing them to activities they may continue to pursue throughout their adult lives.
Applications for our new Sports Hall are in the planning stages and have received approval from the Board of Governors. Meanwhile, we have forged partnerships with several local providers to ensure that our pupils have use of the very best facilities and coaching, and we are very fortunate to enjoy the use of Monken Hadley Common which is just outside the school gates.
