Sport & P.E. Funding

We offer a wide range of sports to our pupils, hopefully there is something for everyone to enjoy and get involved with! We are also very active in competitions with other local & nation schools. Below is a list of all the sports we currently compete against other schools in:

  • Football

  • Tag Rugby
  • Netball
  • High 5 Netball
  • Sports Hall Athletics
  • Cricket
  • Quicksticks
  • Tennis

We also foster a healthy competitive (but friendly!) spirit between our own pupil houses. The winning house accumulated points towards their total and there's a trophy at the end of each year for the house with the greatest quantity of house points. They compete against each other in:

  • Football
  • Netball
  • Rounders
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Tag Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Top Trumps
  • Ball Skills




We also run an additional Olympic-style sports day with traditional track & field competitions for everyone to enjoy.



Bikeability is cycling proficiency for the 21st Century.

Our students can take part in the bikability course from the age of 9 onwards. Level 1 is taught on our own school playgrounds, progressing to level 2 which is taught out on the roads.



Junior Leaders

Our Junior Leaders are trained to help support the fun & games at lunch & break times by organising their own activities for everyone to enjoy. They are excellent role models for the other pupils and really help the house competitions to run smoothly.
