We have excellent sports facilities at Sidcot and we make good use of them. From their earliest years with us, all our pupils have regular sports sessions, starting with PE lessons and swimming sessions in Nursery and Reception.
In Year 1 and 2 children have two PE lessons a week and a swimming session. Year 3 to 6 have two PE lessons, a games afternoon and a swimming session each week.
We focus on the enjoyment of physical activity, not just the competitive element. Children need to experience the joy of winning and succeeding, but we make sure this is as much about achieving personal goals, not just being ‘the best’. It’s important that sport is fun and exciting for everyone – not just the sporty few.
The Junior School makes full use of the Senior School’s excellent facilities which include a 25m swimming pool, a 3G rugby/football training surface, tennis courts and a full size all-weather pitch and an athletics field.
