Excellence with a sense of fun!

Curriculum | Physical Education

Our motto is ‘excellence with a sense of fun’, be it inside or outside the classroom. We ensure that girls feel a sense of achievement in their physical education lessons, that they have fun, ignite new passions and strive for their potential. We aim to give girls a love and passion for physical activity that allows them to develop positive habits and attitudes towards fitness and healthy living. Working with specialist teachers and coaches, we make sure that we provide the best possible training and experience for our girls’ curricular and extra-curricular sporting pursuits.

Teamwork

As part of their physical education lessons our girls learn a variety of team sports that give them a sense of belonging and develop their teamwork skills. Girls learn how to collaborate, communicate effectively and listen to each other, developing skills that are transferable to other subject lessons.

Competition

As part of the curriculum, girls have the opportunity to compete with their classmates, across their year or in their house team. Friendly competition allows the girls to put their teamwork and technical skills to the test while learning to work under pressure and strive towards a common goal. Learning what it is to win is just as important as learning how to lose, a skill that develops resilience and perseverance.

Extra-Curricular Sport

All girls have the opportunity to take part in sports at an extra-curricular level where they will be able to join one of our squads. Clear squad criteria allow girls to identify specific areas for development and understand where they need to improve. Within the squads, girls can then progress through different levels with the potential to transfer to the next squad when all the criteria are met. Progress is recognised and rewarded at all levels.

Girls in squads have the opportunity to compete against other schools, while those in the top squads will be entered into regional and possibly national competitions to represent their school.
