We aim to develop physically educated, confident young learners who have the knowledge, motivation and skills to live a lifelong, healthy and active lifestyle.

We will provide a range of opportunities for them to compete in sport and other activities that help build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.In Key Stage 3 the students will be given the opportunity to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills in a variety of sports. We will provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident and competent to inspire them to follow a healthy and active lifestyle.
