We understand the importance physical education and school sport have in developing the whole child. Our vision is to inspire a generation to hold deep the values of friendship, excellence and respect. Our aim is to challenge each child to reach their full intellectual, creative and physical potential. We aim to develop a sense of personal health and well-being and a desire for lifelong participation in physical activity or competitive sport.
