At South, we want Sport to be as enjoyable as possible. This means fun, engaging lessons and a breadth of activities to interest as wide a range of students as we can. To this end, staff use their experience and enthusiasm to prepare lessons to suit the groups they teach and the individuals in those groups.
We deliver traditional sports, for example football, rugby, cricket, netball, dance and athletics, but we also offer other, less traditional opportunities, such as mountain biking, lacrosse, frisbee, golf or even frisbee golf! We also endeavour to develop generic and transferable skills within lessons such as teamwork, creativity, communication and problem-solving. Our ultimate aim is that students leave South with a positive experience of physical activity because this increases chances of lifelong involvement and a healthier lifestyle.
We offer exam PE at KS4 and KS5 and many extra-curricular activities including football, rugby, cricket, athletics, netball and rounders, offering both training and fixtures in leagues and cups. Although we are focussed upon participation, performance is recognised also.
We produce, supported by clubs, many county, regional and national performers across a range of sports and offer a ‘Gifted and Talented’ provision to mentor and support these individuals further. We are also heavily focused upon student leadership and create many opportunities for interested individuals to excel in this area. House Sports also take place termly and the passion and drive is something to behold, and we run regular sports tours.
