Physical Education (PE) lessons and extra-curricular sports are popular and important parts of life at our Junior School. All girls are encouraged to participate for the benefit of their own health and fitness, and also to learn valuable lessons about team work, fair play and respect.
Each year group takes part in PE lessons which are designed for their age group. The girls in Reception participate in gym activities once a week, complemented with daily movement activity sessions of up to 20 minutes. Year 1 and Year 2 girls take gym and dance classes once a week, taught by a specialist PE teacher, and the girls also take movement activities and sport with their class teacher. Our Year 3 to Year 6 girls have two and a half hours of sport each week, including athletics, dance, gymnastics, hockey, netball, rounders and swimming, as well as the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular sports clubs.
