Get involved and enjoy school sports at Benedict House

Children are encouraged to get involved in as much school sport and outdoor learning as possible. It’s all about enjoyment and participation when it comes to school sports. Sport is an integral part of school life and specialist coaches are used to help children develop the skills necessary for sporting success.

We believe it is important that emphasis is placed, not merely on the training of the natural athlete, but that every effort is made to help the less skilful enjoy taking a full part in sporting activities. Boys and girls take part in all sports in equal measure. The children are also encouraged to lead healthy, active lives on and off the sporting field, for example all snacks and lunches are healthy foods. In Key Stage One (ages 4-7) P.E. includes dance, gym, games, and swimming.
