It is well documented that adults will in future spend many hours involved in leisure and recreational activities. It is important, therefore, that at The Blue Coat School, we prepare our children to take full and active advantage of their leisure time, enabling them to enjoy good health and to have fun, whilst developing a range of important skills.

In PE lessons, our pupils are encouraged to develop skill and self-motivation, thus stimulating enjoyment, satisfaction and a sense of achievement through attainable targets. We aim to provide physical education of the highest quality and promote excellence and encourage enjoyment in all areas through specialist PE teachers.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, with enough differentiation to meet the variety of needs, ages, abilities and interests of every child. Our PE lessons cover a variety of activities including gymnastics, dance, athletics techniques, health and fitness, ball skills, racket skills and swimming, to name just a few.

The Blue Coat School has been awarded the School Games Gold Mark for several consecutive years for our commitment to the development of competition across the School and into the community.
