Meeting personal challenges, working as part of a team and staying healthy are core values that we develop through a comprehensive PE curriculum and programme of sports activities.
Our aim is to ensure students are fit, healthy and take a pride in their appearance, and consequently strengthen their self-confidence and leadership skills. We also aim to encourage students to adopt healthy lifestyles and to prosper from good habits in the future.
All students follow a programme of Physical Education and Sport through to the end of KS4, culminating in a level 2 qualification; either GCSE or BTEC PE. In addition, many students will also follow one of the various sports or dance leader‘s programmes and carry out significant work leading sport with younger students. We have an exceptional team of staff in this area who provide high-quality learning experiences and run numerous sporting teams for all ages.
Sandringham Sport has grown significantly in recent years and our students compete regularly at District, County and National level with great success. We are fortunate to have a wonderful heated indoor swimming pool which adds to the quality of provision and gives students the opportunity to improve their swimming ability, life saving and other water related activities. We also run annual sports tours for girls and boys to allow students the opportunity of competing outside their National environment.
The profile of health and fitness is further enhanced by two key events each year; ‘Fit for Life‘ week in April where everyone (including staff) take on a personal fitness challenge and sample different activities, and the whole school ‘Fun Run‘, where all students (and staff) enjoy a five-mile jog around the local countryside in aid of charity.
I am proud of being at Sandringham because it offers a great range of academic and sporting activities.William - Year 9
