Physical Education

Physical Education (PE) is taught from Nursery to Year 6. We have a purpose built, fully equipped gymnasium, a netball court and four short tennis courts. Swimming lessons take place at Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre nearby.

We aim to deliver a balanced PE programme that provides pupils with the opportunity to acquire and develop skills in a range of activities, such as gymnastics, dance, games, core/multi-skills, athletics, cricket, rounders, football and swimming. Our environment allows and encourages girls to be physically active so that they become skilful and intelligent performers, as well as raising their awareness of the benefits of sport and an active lifestyle. Our girls’ participation in PE also contributes hugely to personal qualities such as self-esteem, confidence, tolerance, cooperation and empathy. Pupils are given guidance to become independent learners, creative thinkers and problem solvers. Our pupils have the opportunity to represent the school in team sports matches from Year 4 to Year 6.
