Enhancing Physical Development
A wide range of enrichment activities is offered to every child in Middle School, helping them to develop their own unique skills beyond the traditional curriculum and foster an enthusiasm for learning. At this stage pupils have more opportunities to enter into competitions with other schools, locally and nationally in both sports and the arts.
Sporting enrichment allows the children to try new activities and find something that fits with their own personal interests and abilities. Activities include:
Karate – the children are trained and officially graded in Goju Ryu Karate Do by their professional Karate Sensei
Football – professional coaches teach the children key football skills
Judo – practise in this martial art delivered is by a professional Judo Sensei
Rugby – our talented PE staff run sessions to teach pupils rugby skills
Pupils can begin to compete in ISA National competitions for Swimming, Football, Netball, Cross-Country
