Sports Events

Sports competitions are the perfect outlet for skills and knowledge that children gain from physical education. It is also an opportunity for children to play and have fun with their friends and achieve something worthwhile.

Within our LAP (Local Authority Partnership) we organise and take part in many sport events and competitions. Throughout school, children are chosen to represent the school in a variety of different sports including: table tennis, football, athletics, rugby, cross country running, gymnastics and many more.

We also hold different sporting events in school including penalty shoot outs, our much loved Sports Day and our annual Race for Life.
