We actively encourage our children to get physically active, have fun and take part in a number of sports and leisure activities within our school and also within our local community through a variety of clubs.

Twice annually at the beginning of the Summer and Winter sports season, we hold a Sports and Leisure sign up day. This enables representatives from our local clubs and Jackie to come and tell our children and parents about what they could do, answer any questions they may have and provide them a chance to sign up or take information home.
