We believe active lifestyles enable young people to develop healthy and fit habits that will stay with them forever. The school provides opportunities to try out a variety of activities at lunchtimes and after-school, which broadens and extends the activities on offer in the curriculum. We recognise the educational value of appropriate competitive school sport and the part it plays in the personal development of all young people. It has the capacity to develop sporting behaviour, raise self-esteem and encourage social inclusion. Competitive sport can prepare young people for the competitive challenges they will face in life.
