Sporting events and matches take place throughout the year and we have both intra and inter school competitions in athletics, cross country, football and athletics.


Please make sure your child knows when they have P.E and ensure their kit is in school on those days. Children require trainers, navy shorts, a coloured t-shirt (depending on which house they are in) and a tracksuit for the colder months as most lessons will be outside.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at if you have any concerns or queries.
