PHYSICAL EDUCATION.

The School has three playing fields which include two rugby pitches and three football pitches. There is a specialist Hammer/Discus cage and all other athletics facilities. There is also a well-equipped gymnasium and a Pavilion. Adjacent to the School are fields and hills which are used for cross-country running and orienteering.
In Years 7, 8 and 9 pupils are taught athletics, basketball, cricket, cross-country running, football, gymnastics, orienteering, rugby, softball and volleyball.

Students are shown how to adapt their skills to enable them to devise strategies and tactics appropriate to their ability level. They are shown how to evaluate strengths and weaknesses, prepare for exercise and how to establish and maintain health.

In later years students learn to referee, judge and coach their activities. They are also taught how to plan, undertake and evaluate a safe health-promoting exercise plan. We also offer courses in Physical Education to GCSE and A Level.

The School has a long tradition of sporting success in all the main sports at District and County level, especially Football, Rugby, Athletics, Cricket and Cross-Country. House matches for the above activities take place each Term.

The School Swimming Sports are held annually at the Dover Leisure Centre Pool. The major annual event is the full Sports Day in July.
