We aim to provide our pupils with the opportunity to become fit and healthy, grow in confidence and learn vital skills, such as teamwork, leadership and problem solving. Our ambition is for every pupil to have the opportunity to find a sport they love, setting them up to lead healthy, active lives and equipping them with the skills to reach their full potential, both inside and outside the classroom.

We provide opportunities for pupils to continue sport in a competitive or formal environment, catering for a range of abilities. We provide a range of curriculum pathways in key stage 4 and 5, which supports students of all abilities ensuring they progress and successfully access higher education.
