Sport

To develop pupils’ experiences and enable them to achieve personal successes, appropriate skills and the confidence to partake in any physical activity.

We are very proud of our pupil’s sporting achievements at St George’s.
During the year we take part in numerous leagues, tournaments and competitions for football, netball, cross country swimming, cricket, rounders and athletics. We have extensive grounds and playing fields that we make great use of at the school.

Physical Education in the Curriculum

Lessons in physical education are taught by specialist coaches and class teachers, offering expertise in a variety of sporting and physical activities. Opportunities are provided for pupils to experience indoor and outdoor environments onsite and at other locations.

Through physical education:

  • pupils will model positive sporting behaviours of passion, belief, respect, honesty, determination and teamwork as demonstrated in the School Games model
  • embedded daily activities promote physical and mental wellbeing
  • to achieve personal goals and strive for excellence, pupils are inspired to participate in competitive and inclusive sports events both individually and as a team
  • opportunities are provided to represent the school and compete in intra-school, interschool, regional and national events
  • links with neighbouring schools and other sports clubs are a predominant feature to embed physical activity into our pupils’ lifestyles
  • trips to experience wider sporting opportunities demonstrating levels of excellence are provided when available, e.g. International Eisteddfod and Netball World Cup.

Swimming

Y4 and Y5 children will go swimming in the Autumn and Summer Terms during the school day. Children from St. George’s School use the facilities at Shrewsbury School for their swimming lessons.
