Sport

We foster an excellent relationship with our neighbouring school, Cheltenham Ladies' College, and fully utilise their excellent sport facilities, accessible from the Airthrie garden. These include a 25 metre-long swimming pool, hockey and netball courts, and playing fields.

Key Stage 1

Pupils in KS1 (Years 1 and 2) have a sport afternoon every Tuesday.

During this time they will study a range of sporting activities which will include an introduction to simple ball, football, hockey and tag rugby skills as well as fitness/running activities.

During the summer term these activities are replaced by athletics, rounders and kwik-cricket.

Pupils also have a 30 minute swimming lesson once per week.

Key Stage 2

Pupils in KS2 (Years 3-6) have a sport afternoon on either a Wednesday or a Thursday each week.

We enjoy learning the skills and playing netball, hockey, football, tag rugby and running/cross-country; Year 3 also participate in gymnastics lessons.

During the summer term these activities are replaced by athletics, rounders and kwik-cricket.

Pupils in KS2 also have a 30 minute swimming lesson each week on either a Monday or a Friday afternoon.

KS2 Annual Sport Timetable

Sport is taught in the afternoons for Years 3 and 4 on Wednesdays and Years 5 and 6 on Thursdays. The timetable is divided into two main sessions. Lessons begin with a warm up, followed by running or athletic activities.  Specialist sports are coached during Session 2.
