Enrichment and Extra-Curricular

The PE Department runs clubs and teams in a variety of extra-curricular sports and physical activities including Netball, Football, Basketball, Rugby Union, Table Tennis, Badminton, Dance, Hockey, Boxercise, Trampolining, Cross-Country, Fitness, Dodgeball, Non-Traditional Games, Volleyball, Cricket, Softball, Rounders and Outdoor & Adventurous Pursuits. The department also organises inter-form sports activities and competition along with running some ‘A’ team and ‘B’ fixtures, competitions and events that are inclusive to all. The department offers breakfast PE clubs, lunch time PE clubs and after school PE clubs that are open to all pupils. Regular fixtures take place against other schools. The department takes an active role in the Bury Secondary School Sports Partnership. We have strong links with local sports clubs and organisations that help to provide a pathway for our pupils to play sport and follow a healthy and active lifestyle outside of school.

The department offers sports leadership opportunities throughout the academic year for different year groups. Gifted and talented sessions along with PE inclusion sessions and clubs also take place throughout the academic year for different sports and physical activities. Our aim as a PE Department is to provide ‘Sport for All’ throughout the academic year.
