Sporting activities are an integral part of our School. The School has experienced success at national, regional and local levels. A fundamental aim of the School is to give every child an opportunity to participate at some stage during the year. Pupils perform as individuals, within a group or as part of a team in PE and games. Sports Day takes place every year on the school field and all children compete. There are also many inter-house events; again all children are expected to participate.
