Our Core Sports

Our core sports programme is designed with our settings in mind. We have two pathways for either year-round (51 weeks) or term-time only (40 weeks) settings and three distinct age groups for tailored learning at each stage. 

The year-long curriculum focuses of six sports specifically chosen to give a wide range of development and inspiration.
