Physical Education (PE) is lively and fun at St Mary’s! We introduce girls to a variety of activities designed to keep them fit and healthy, teaching them basic techniques of a wide range of sports and team games.

Our main sports are netball, hockey skills and cross-country running in the winter, rounders and athletics in the summer. As well as gymnastics sessions, Year 1 and above swim for one term every year and there are dance lessons in the junior years.

We also look to provide opportunities to try a variety of sports. For example, the girls recently had cricket taster sessions which they thoroughly enjoyed.

Orienteering is a new addition to the PE curriculum, which encourages map reading and decision-making. It’s also a great way of getting children active. The pupils enjoy taking part in both team and individual challenges in the nine acres of school grounds.

Our extra-curricular sports clubs are also extremely popular, particularly tennis, cross-country, netball and football. For more information on sports clubs and activities visit our Activities and Enrichment page.
