Our Sports

EYFS & Key Stage 1:

Children in reception, year 1 and year 2 are taught the fundamental concepts and basic principles of Physical Education across a variety of different sports. All the children have three lessons a week. In the autumn term children are taught football, netball and dance. In the spring term hockey, rugby and gymnastics. In the summer term athletics, rounders and cricket. In addition to this the children receive a term of swimming lessons at the local Kensington Leisure Centre. The year is wrapped up with a hugely enjoyable sports day event where the children can showcase their many talents to family and friends.

Key Stage 2

Children in year 3 to 6 receive two lessons a week from the Sports Department. Our lessons are taught in a co-ed environment with an emphasis on gender neutral sports. During the week, children will have a PE lesson focusing on an individual/artistic sport such as dance, gymnastics, athletics and tennis. Every Friday they have a games lesson where the children are taken off-site to focus on football, hockey, netball, rugby, athletics and cricket. The KS2 children also compete in weekly competitive fixtures and tournaments against other local Prep schools. Our inclusive attitude to sport means that we always take multiple teams to compete in fixtures, allowing all our children to experience these vital experiences. The children thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to compete and we aim to instil the importance of gamesmanship and sportsmanship from an early age. KS2 children also receive weekly structured swimming lessons at Kensington Leisure Centre and will swim for half of the academic year.
